Kadomatsu is a symbol of strength, flexibility, constancy, vitality, longevity, purity, sweetness and new beginnings. Follow the Japanese tradition, locals placed them at entries to greet ancestral spirit as well as a gesture of invitation and prayer for the New Year. How can such simple arrangement of green bamboo, pine and plum blossoms tied together with straw rope can symbolizes so many things. Each element in the arrangement lend its meaning to the full piece. Check out our last years post on the symbolism of kadomatsu. Add to it could also be white chrysanthemum, kokutan and nanten. Happy New Year, everyone.
