This is a color that has been used in Japan since the Heian Period (794-1192). In Kabuki Theatre, this is one of the three colors of the final closing curtain. It is a reserved and subtle green. I find it suitable for the base color of dragons, Fujin, oni, the kimono of samurai, as well as the leaves of kiku (chrysanthemum) and botan (peony).
