Decorative barrels for display Iwai-KinnoAsahi / Large size
The Chinese character for celebration in Japan, "Iwai" (congratulations), is written in large red letters within a golden morning sun rising from the horizon. Within the golden sunrise are a couple of cranes, pine, bamboo, and plum, symbolizing ever-growing prosperity like the rising sun.
The crane is also considered to be a symbol of marital bliss, as the crane is said to live for a thousand years, and is also thought of as a bird that is connected to the gods, as its cry reaches to the sky.
The pine tree is an evergreen coniferous tree that keeps its leaves green all year round and is considered a symbol of longevity because it can grow for tens or hundreds of years.
Bamboo is a symbol of "prosperity of offspring" because it never withers and grows straight and supple all year round, and because its roots are firmly planted in the ground and sprouts emerge.
The plum tree is a symbol of "nobility" and "longevity" because of its vitality, blooming with a noble fragrance before a hundred flowers in early spring, when the weather is still bitterly cold.
The core material of the decorative barrel is styrofoam, so it cannot be filled with alcohol or opened by Kagami-biraki.
Please use it for store displays and for creating Japanese-style spaces.
