Hidden meaning / 深意


【日本語版は英語版のあとです】

“Kuchinashi” is Gardenia in Japanese. Literally, it means “No mouth” because it takes fruits forever to open their mouths for sowing seeds.


According to common theory, legs of Shogi*1 and Go*2 boards were made after shape of fruits of Kuchinashi.

It implies “Everyone watching this game, shut your mouth!” Lol


Notes

*1 It is similar to chess.

*2 It is like board game capturing territory.

実がなかなか割れず、口を開けなかいことから名付けられたと言われるクチナシ。


将棋盤と碁盤の脚の部分は、実を象ったという通説もある。

「周りは口出しするな」と。笑
