Koke or moss are important elements in Japanese gardens, as well as ornamental plants (eg bonsai). The Koke garden of the Saiho-ji, Kyoto (1250) is said to have over 120 species of koke. 'Koke-covered' has a positive and respectful connotation in Japanese, respecting for an ancient time, long-term establishment and stability. The word is also featured in the national anthem, wishing he Nation's long-lasting fortune 'until it is covered with moss'.
