「Lucky omen」

This design incorporates three happiness designs.

1,Tsuru(Cranes) & Turtles
As "Tsuru(Cranes) is a millennium, turtles are a million years", both are representative of animals that live long. Tsuru(Cranes) are a happy couple, and turtles have good luck.

2,Pine, Bamboo and Plum (an auspicious grouping)
ShoChikuBai has been used since ancient times as a doll and has become an indispensable part of the celebration.
This is because the pine always keeps green, the bamboo grows up straight while being rich in elasticity, and the plum blossoms before the leaves in early spring, and it also produces medicinal fruits.

3,Rising Sun & Wave
The reason why the ocean is used as the background of Asahi is that the state of the waves, which sometimes changes quietly and sometimes vibrantly, resembles the world. Quiet waves represent home sufficiency, and rough waves represent the fulfillment of a great wish only after enduring trials.

「NINJA -Japanese assassination force-」

A ninja (Japanese pronunciation: [ɲiꜜɲdʑa]) or shinobi ( [ɕinobi]) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of a ninja included espionage, deception, and surprise attacks.Their covert methods of waging irregular warfare were deemed dishonorable and beneath the honor of the samurai.
The word shinobi appears in the written record as far back as the late 8th century in poems in the Man'yōshū.The underlying connotation of shinobi means "to steal away; to hide" and—by extension—"to forbear", hence its association with stealth and invisibility.
