Also termed ZUKURI in the East and WEEPING Style in the West. Similar to style in nature of the weeping willow.

Bottom branches should be bigger than the top, as in other styles, and will weep less than top branches. SHOOTS should be trained early to produce the "fishing pole" curve effect. In this case the curve can be achieved using weights as opposed to wire.
