Tanyoho

Tanyoho is the same as mekiri, which refers to bud trimming. It is one of the means of cutting off first buds of pine trees, such as kuromatsu (black), akamatsu (red) and nishikimatsu (a variety of kuromatsu) pines and lining up their second buds to develop into short and beautiful leaves. In order to carry out this method, it is necessary to give sufficient spraying water and nutrition to pines in the year before and thin leaves by March of the current year.
