Myoga Kamon Engraving
Zingiber mioga (Japanese ginger) - 「 茗荷」 in Japanese.
The Myoga is one of the 10 most used family emblems (judaimon) in Japan.
The word "Myoga", when written with different Chinese characters, can also mean "God's blessing", and this mon was thus believed to attract divine protection.
The Myoga mon has about 230 known variations, but the most commonly used design is the Daki Myoga, which represents two symmetrical circular ginger shoots.
Daki Myoga (embracing ginger shoots).
The most basic Daki Myoga design.
Maru ni Daki Myoga (embracing ginger shoots in a ring).
The most commonly used Daki Myoga emblem nowadays. Used by Yamamoto Jocho, writer of the Hagakure, Ukiyo-e artist Kitagawa Utamaro, writer Mishima Yukio or director Kitano Takeshi, among others.
