Yuki Kamon Engraving
Snow crystal - 「雪」 in Japanese.
Although there have been depictions of snow crystals in Japan for centuries, the Yuki mon is a rather recent emblem. Without microscopes, it was difficult to have a precise idea of how snow crystals really looked. That’s why Yuki mon started to spread from the first half of the 19th century, after the publication of Sekka Zusetsu in 1832 by Doi Toshitsura, the 4th lord of Koga Domain.
Doi imported the first microscope to Japan, and started to observe snow crystals as a hobby. He then compiled 86 of his snow crystal drawings into the Sekka Zusetsu. Most of the Yuki mon known nowadays derive from Doi's study.
Kumori Yuki ("cloudy" snow crystal).
San'ya Yuki (mountain & valley snow crystal).
Ya Yuki (arrow snow crystal).
Yama Fubuki (mountain storm snow crystal).
