Giboshi 擬宝珠

About Giboshi

Giboshi is usually used to decorate handrails in shrines, temples and Japanese traditional bridges. It is believed that the shape of Giboshi was copied from Hoju, which is used to decorate roofs and called ‘The Gem which makes all of your dreams come true’. Some people also think the shape of Giboshi was modeled from flowers of the Welsh onion, whose distinct odor is believed to protect against evil.
