Kamiyama Eiichiro was introduced by mentor Fukuzawa Yoshi, the founder of the Meiji era and the founder of Keio University, to the boss of a plant company in the United states. The mountain warmly entertained the boss, and gave the orange, bamboo and other seedlings to the boss as a gift when returning home. The next year, the boss sent a box of plant seeds. The letter shows that many Americans are rich because of the production of this plant. The seeds are pyrethrum native to Yugoslavia.
The boss of the American plant company explained in his letter that the plant could also be cultivated in the wasteland. Kamiyama Eiichiro then think that if the pyrethrum spread to all parts of the country. And the protection of crops, the crops are exported to foreign countries, might save some insects often by the poor peasants. Then, the mountain began to wander around the country. Unfortunately, most of the farmers are not interested. Kamiyama Eiichiro also thought that if the pyrethrum was made of ash, sprinkled on the crops, maybe the farmers could accept it, but the experiment was not effective.
