Asanoha Kamon Engraving
Hemp leaf - 「麻の葉」 in Japanese.
The Asanoha kamon comes from the Asanoha motif used as kimono ornament. It represents a geometric abstraction of a hemp leaf.
In ancient Japan, hemp was used during shamanic rituals linked to shintoism and was then considered a sacred plant.
Asanoha kamon are however rather new, as they appeared and spread mainly from the 19th century. It is also a rare emblem, with only a dozen variations. Asanoha mon are often used by families who have the Kanji "Asa" 「麻 」 in their name.
Maru ni Asanoha (asanoha in a ring).
The most used Asanoha mon. Also used as shinmon by a few shrines.
Mitsu Wari Asanoha (3 split asanoha).
Maru ni Ma-asa (real hemp leaf in a ring).
