Hananomai was established in 1864 with nearly 160 years of history. The name comes from "Hananomai” (flower dance), one of the traditional "Hono Odori" (dances of dedication) passed down from antiquity along the Tenryu River System.


"Hana" (flower) represents the flower of a rice plant, which becomes sustenance for life. "Hananomai” is a dance in which people pray for a bountiful harvest.
