[Explanation of a color]
The Tankoushoku, is a pale pink, such as mixed with white to red. Originally it had been pointing to the thin red dyed by safflower, but became an adjective to refer to the thin red in general, regardless of the dye. All the way, such as “Arazome” “Sakura-iro”, “Toki-iro” is included in the Tankoushoku.
Safflower dyed in ancient times is expensive as color becomes dark, dark red, you could only wear those high Identification as “Kinjiki”. For this reason, the lowly who are not allowed to wear only a thin red-dyed, such as “Tankoushoku”, seems to have to distinguish such a color with the and called color name “Yurushi-iro” and “Ikkonzome”.
