According to Japanese folklore, Japan is resting on the back of a giant Namazu (catfish), whose sudden movements are responsible for the many earthquakes shaking the archipelago.
The catfish is also a symbol of protection and prevention against earthquakes. They are indeed very sensitive to changes in the electric field that occur in the early stages of an earthquake. They are sometimes very agitated until 24 hours before an earthquake!

A Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth, which people used to carry their clothes and toiletries, but later came to be used to carry (or wrap) just about anything. Today furoshiki lost its popularity as a practical everyday item, but remains a cultural traditional and aesthetic value and is still widely use to wrap presents.
You can use it like this or simply as a decoration item (wall hanging, wine holder, table cloth) or a fashion accessory.
