Shippo / Shichihou
“Shippo (Shichihou / Shicchin)” means 7 valuable jewels in Buddhism (Gold / Silver / Lapis lazuli / Glass / Coral / Giant clam / Agate). In the pattern of Shippo, circles infinitely chain. Those infinite circles express “peace” “harmony” and “prosperity of posterity”.
Seigaiha is a design of waves of sea. We wish this pattern that “peaceful life will last forever like the calm waves of the sea.”
Yabane is arrow fletching. Yabane is believed to have meaning of “achieve purpose” since arrows hit the target.
This pattern become popular from the pattern of hakama of Sanogawa Ichimatsu, who was a kabuki actor in Edo era. Ichimatsu pattern chains up and down, left to right. So, this pattern expresses “longevity and forever peace.” Ichimatsu is used for the emblem of Tokyo Olympic in 2020. It is a representative pattern of Japan.
Karakusa is designed from winding vines. Vital plants express “prosperity of posterity” and eternal “repeat of happiness.”
