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.

Torn Plantain

The plantain is a banana-like plant that came from China. A plantain leaf measures about 2 meters, and it is easily torn when blown by the wind. From this characteristic, the implication of “attacking the opponent as strongly as if it were a plantain leaf to be torn” has been attributed to the plantain leaf. Thus, it is considered auspicious in the militaristic sense, and was therefore used in kamon. Because of its auspicious “torn” attribute, it is characteristic of this kamon to depict the leaves as being torn in places.
