The Japanese word "edabone" means the framework of a branch on a tree and the way the branch's core flows. It is an important term in bonsai appreciation, as it reflects the natural growth and beauty of the tree. Edabone can be influenced by pruning, wiring and bending techniques, but it should always look harmonious and balanced. Edabone is also related to the concept of tapering, which means that the branch should gradually become thinner from the base to the tip.
