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.

House of Nakagawa's Pair of Japanese Emperor Oak Leaves

Presently, Japanese emperor oak leaves are used to wrap kashiwa mochi, a well-known type of sticky rice cake in Japan. These leaves are large and sturdy, and in ancient times, these leaves were used to contain food in the Shinto ritual of offering food to the gods. Because of this, such leaves are considered sacred, and has been used in the kamon of the families of Shinto priests. When new leaves sprout from a Japanese emperor oak tree, they replace the old leaves which then fall to the ground, ensuring that the tree is never bare. From these circumstances, this kamon contains the hope that a family will always have descendants, and that the clan will continue forever.
