Hour of Meeting Evil Spirits

“The tsubaki is an evergreen tree with a peculiar trait. Instead of losing its flowers gradually, petal-by-petal, it drops them all at once to the ground. As a result, it has long been associated with death and strangeness in Japan. It is taboo to bring tsubaki flowers as gifts to hospitals or sick people.”


—Hour of Meeting Evil Spirits: An Encyclopedia of Mononoke and Magic, Meyer, Matthew
