Product details

Kitsune Mask Pin: Kitsune masks are used in traditional Japanese theater (Nō) and have a ritual and religious meaning. The Inari shrine in Kyoto is well-known for its numerous red Torii guiding the way up the hill.

Moon Rabbit Pin: The moon rabbit (Tsuki no Usagi) is based on Japanese and chinese mythology. It‘s part of an ancient legend about the friendship between a fox, a monkey and a white rabbit.

White Kistune Pin: Kistune are known for being both good and evil. They are a symbol of wealth and capable of shapeshifting – often turning into women to seduce unsuspecting men.

Tanuki Pin: The Tanuki (= Raccoon Dog) is a true master of disguise. They are well-known for fooling and play games with people. He has eight special traits that bring good fortune – and always carries a bottle of sake (the hachi symbol (八) of the sake flask is a symbol for these eight traits).

Maneki Neko Pin: The Maneki Neko is a popular talisman and also brings good luck to the owner. A white cat stands for purity and happiness, a golden one for wealth and prosperity. It holds a golden coin (koban) which is a symbol for 10,000,000 ryo, an old japanese currency in the Edo period.

Shuhaku Pin: There are numerous tales about the shapeshifting Shukaku. He’s a Tanuki and has the ability to transform himself into a monk that owns a special tea kettle with an infinite amount of hot water. Other tales say that the Shukaku is not transforming into a monk but into the tea kettle itself.

Bakeneko Pin: The Bakeneko is a normal cat that develops supernatural power in the old age. It has great shape-shifting abilities and likes to disguise as a human – it can even walk on its hind paws and learn the human language. The Bakeneko loves to play tricks and dance around merrily.

Sunekosuri Pin: Sunekosuri are dog-like small spirits that follow travellers walking in the dark. They rub against their shins and make them stumble just for fun without harming anyone (its name literally means "rub against lower legs"). They have extremely round heads and are a bit chubby.

Kappa Pin: Kappas are pretty well-known Yōkais. Whoever played “Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town” (like me haha) should have met one of these guys when throwing a cucumber into the pond. Their appearance is a mix between human and turtle and they usually live in Japanese ponds or rivers. The sara (the cavity on its head) retains water and represents/contains its life force.

Yuki Onna Pin: The Yuki Onna (“snow woman”) is a well-known Japanese Yōkai. She’s a beautiful woman with black hair and a white, elegant Kimono. In some tales she is regarded as the “Moon Princess” that was bored and followed snow flakes to earth – and could not return.

Ippondatara Pin: The Ippondatara is the ghost of a giant boar that lives in the mountains. It has been bound by a high priest so most of the time it’s harmless. But the binding allows it to roam free on December 20th each year – it’s very dangerous to go hiking in the mountains at that time.

Karasu Tengu Pin: A Karasu Tengu is a bird-like humanoid Yōkai covered in black feathers – just like a crow. At one time Tengus were feared by humans, people even made offerings to appease Tengus. But nowadays they are considered as a protective gods in Japanese Buddhism.

Daruma Pin: A Daruma is a traditional Japanese doll-like talisman, known for its vibrant red color and often used as a gift for encouragement. Usually (when you purchase a Daruma) it has no or just blank eyes. You make a wish and fill the first eye of the Daruma. If the wish gets fulfilled you fill the second one.
