The Tsuba logo

The Kobushi Multimedia logo was inspired from a pair of tsuba (sword guards) by a famous Edo-period (19th century) craftsman Kamiyoshi Rakuju. Created for a daisho (large and small swords) the tsuba depict a crescent moon, dew covered pampas grass in openwork and hammered inlaid gold.
   The lush dew-laden pampas grass, with the crescent moon long symbolized the Musashino, the broad grass plain where warriors of eastern Japan created the shogunal capital, Edo. As early as the Heian period (794-1142) Musashino served as a theme for literature, painting and the arts.
