■ What is a family crest?
A family crest is a crest that originated in Japan, and is a symbol that represents a family or clan.
It is said that in the Heian period, the aristocracy put the pattern on the ox cart that they rode to visit the imperial court, and it became established as a family crest in the Kamakura period.
The ten major Japanese family crests are wisteria, katabiki, mokko, hawk feather, ivy, oak, paulownia, myoga, tachibana, and tachibana. Many family crests are crests derived from plants, animals, nature, buildings, utensils, patterns, symbols, and designs.
Family crests, crests, and kamons correspond to symbols and coats of arms in the West. It is also famous as a design that represents the world.
The crests used by Genji and Taira clan warriors as a mark on the battlefield gradually came to be used as family crests, and came to be treated as a symbol of the unity of the clan and the ruling party. Among them, the crests of Sengoku daimyo (feudal lords) in the Sengoku period are impressive.
In the Edo period, family crests spread to the common people. This is said to be because only a limited number of people were permitted to use surnames, but there were no restrictions on family crests.
Even today, family crests are an integral part of Japanese life and culture.
