Persimmon Near Kusho Myoshin

There are two persimmon trees near Kusho Myoshin and both are full of fruit! Little fruit. The persimmons that are commonly eaten in Japan are much larger. This variety of persimmon is called sarugaki (persimmon is “kaki“), or “monkey persimmon.” They are small enough to fit in the palm of an adult’s hand. “Monkey persimmon” are edible, but quite tart. (Please take our word for it and do not pick or eat any persimmon you come across at Ninna-ji or any other temple!)Persimmon Near Kusho Myoshin
