Those made in Japan Fuchi and Kashira are of classic Higo design. and feature Gingko leaves in an arabesque pattern. Higo is a province in South Japan that is known, in swords designs, for its round curve design and especially for its rounded Kashira. Also called "silver apricot", Ginkgo is a very important plant in buddhism and confucianism. Notably, the Ginkgo trees are so resistant that they were among the very few living things still standing within the 1 km radius blast of the Hiroshima atomic bombing. At the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine, the oldest known Gingko tree in the world is over 1000 years old.
Minosaka's Iaito lineup allows many customizations but each model is fixed and named depending on its Fuchi & Kashira. This model is the default Fuchi/Kashira set mounted on the Kanesada Koshirae.
