Mayudama

Mayudama

In FY2013, the Mayudama Plan was adopted as a Program to Support the Activities of Female Researchers (General) under the authority of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

The word "Mayudama", which describes the ball-shaped cocoons produced by silkworms, was chosen as a tribute to the long-standing silk cultivation and textile industry of Gunma.

The word is also associated with a traditional form of decoration known as "Mayudama-kazari", which consists of cocoon-shaped rice cakes speared onto tree branches and is regarded as a symbol of fertility.

It is our hope that the Mayudama Plan can enrich the development of research, similar to how silkworms are cultivated in their cocoons.
