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 Kitashirakawa* Chrysanthemum

As a symbol of the Imperial Family, the chrysanthemum has long been a familiar flower to the Japanese, and it is said that it was first imported from China. During the Heian Period (794-1185), it was used in potions for longevity, and it was preferred as a noble flower that people appreciated. During the Kamakura Period (1185-1333), Emperor Go Toba, who deeply loved the chrysanthemum design, placed chrysanthemum flower designs on his belongings such as his clothes, furnishings, and imperial oxcart. In the passing down of this design to subsequent emperors, the chrysanthemum flower was established as the Imperial Family’s crest.
* Kitashirakawa is one of the branches of the Japanese Imperial Family.
