Background

Japanese culture places a lot of value on symbols. These are kanji characters, or tokens, or animals, that represent ideas of particular importance in Japan. Among the more well-known symbols are the lucky cat (representing luck in various areas of life), the daruma doll (representing perseverence), butterflies (representing joy and longevity), and cherry blossoms (representing the transience of life).
