Japanese Family Crests, Kamon      1 to 20 of 20      

The Japanese have a system of family crests called "Mon" which are similar in some ways to heraldic symbols in western culture. The first mon were design motifs brought to Japan from China during the T'ang dynasty and were initially used for identification on the battlefield. Over time the designs expanded, reflecting Japanese art and esthetic and came to represent family lineage. The Japanese character for Mon is made up of two elements which can be translated as thread and markings. These family emblems were embroidered on Kimono and used in other ways to identify family heritage. To find out more about Japanese Mon, click HERE.
