This C. japonica chance  seedling of 'Bokuhan'  was originated, named and released by Eimei Nagata in 1957 in Nagoya City, Japan.

Bloom: The miniature anemone form bloom is crimson and has a row of 7-9 rounded to obovate and slightly emarginated crimson outer petals that surround a compact, central cushion of small, erect, folded crimson petals with white edges. Very similar to 'Bokuhan' but it is largern and has more petals. The name means "Master of Ceremonies".

Plant: The leaves are pale green, elliptic, apex acuminate, and the margins are shallowly serrulated.

Bloom season: early to late.
