October: Kyugatsu: Maple: Kito
Associated with peace and serenity of the world's elements, Japanese maple trees represent balance and practicality and are called "kito" in the Japanese language, which means "calm," "rest" or "at peace."
Commonplace in every Palauan home, Hanafuda(Hanahuda) is a flower card game brought to the islands by the Japanese during the World Wars that has become engrained in Micronesian culture worldwide. Centered around the seasons, these beautiful cards remind us of our connection to the cycles of the Earth.
May this adornment work in unison with your intentions to feel flow and embrace the beauty within as you navigate the path towards holistic harmony.
