Tim H-san konnichiwa,

Thanks for your comment!
The word tōmorokoshi is used for any types of corn, such as canned ones, the ones on a cob.
It’s said that shichimen (seven faces) came from its face.
A turkey changes its face/neck colour when they get angry/excited.

Hope this helps,

Corn on the cob is called “Tomorrow Corn”?
Do we know why turkeys are called seven-faced birds (bird with seven faces)?

I still love the word かぼちや
