He holds a mallet (D) in his hands which have curled fingers. The Hanasaka Jiisan story is about a kind old man and his wife whose dog, Shiro, uncovers gold in their farmyard. A mean neighbor sees this discovery and asks to borrow the dog who only digs up garbage, so the mean man kills him. The kind couple bury their dog and plant a pine tree on his grave. The tree grows fast and they cut it down to make a mochi morter because the dog had loved mochi cakes. As they pound the mochi it turns into gold. The mean man asks to borrow the mortar, but when he pounded mochi it turned into garbage, so the man burned the mortar. The kind man took the ashes and scattered them around his garden. Suddenly in the middle of winter cherry trees bloomed. A passing prince saw this and asked the old man to make his trees bloom too. He did this and was rewarded by the prince and became known as Sir Old-Man-Who-Makes-Trees-Blossom.
