In Japan, kamon is a symbol or mark that signifies a family's lineage. It is a family crest that has been handed down from generation to generation. Furoshiki is a square cloth that is used to wrap objects. It is said that its origins lie in the Nara Period (710-794), and the Japanese have long used furoshiki to carry and store things. Because one furoshiki can wrap bottles and boxes of various shapes, it has been used by merchants for transport, by travelers for packing things, and by many to wrap congratulatory gifts.

Sitting Horse

Since ancient times, the horse has been closely intertwined with the daily lives of the Japanese, having been depicted in paintings, sculptures, building ornamentation, among others. During the Muromachi Period (1336-1573), people began to offer votive pictures of a horse at shrines, resulting in even more kinds of horses being depicted. Fast, fearless steeds were preferentially treated by the military. From this practice, the horse motif was used for militaristic reasons in kamon. This is the crest used by the descendants of Taira no Masakado, a samurai who lived during the Heian Period (794-1185).
