See Tachi: Enpi for the translation of "Tachi:"

This weaponskill's original name in the Japanese version is:

太刀・花車 (Kyuu no Tachi: Kassha)

"The Ninth Style of the Tachi: 'Wheel of Flowers'."

Kasha can also be pronounced 'Hanaguruma', which is a kind of Chinese flower. It is a Clematis, which is a kind of 'climbing' flower (it grows in vines up available collumns, trees, etc). A Hanaguruma flower is seen during the animation of this weaponskill.
