And he has strong claws which is the symbol of catching dream and luck. The arrow is often put together with eagle. This arrow is called “Hamaya”, which breaks evil and keep family safe.

・ Warrior helmet (Kabuto)
Kabuto is the popular design next to eagle. It represents the courage and strength of boy. It is also a symbol of success because in old days, only high-class Samurai could wear beautiful Kaburo.

・Carp (Koi )
Koi has a strong energy to survive in any tough conditions. He survives both in river and in ponds. In the old story of China, Koi was the only survivor among different kind of fishes trying to climb up the dangerous waterfall, and Koi became dragon. So Koi is the symbol of success in career.
