  1. Hi there!

    Fascinating blog you have here. I was wondering if you could tell me more about this dog with awabe on a string motif? I’ve been looking for information on this and couldn’t find any.

    I’ve just recieved my Iaito, and the fuchi kashira set had this motif on it so I’m very curious to what it means. Does it have a particular story behind this?

    Cheers! Any information or point towards the right direction would be extremely helpful.

    • Hi, I am not sure if it related to any particular tale, but it shows great humour and was a favoured theme of Gotò Sòjò. If I find out anything more, I will add it here.

      best wishes

      Richard
