Hanakotoba is the "language of flowers" in Japan. At first glance the language of flowers and the most lethal fighting class of Japan do not appear to have anything in common. However, the flower in Japan was not seen as being feminine. Flower arrangement was seen as an essential part of the Samurai's training. In the language of flowers each flower has a different meaning. In the flower language the sun flower means respect.

The sword includes a certificate of authenticity, and sword bag.

According to Japanese mythology Ryujin was the god of the seas. Similar to Chinese mythology, the ruler of the seas took the form of a dragon. His palace was under the ocean and constructed from red and white coral. Jelly fish, sea turtles and fish were his servants. The rulers of Japan would trace their lineage to Ryujin. Because of this fact, it was recorded that the Empress Jingu was able to control the tides that won the victory over the Korean navy.
