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 tenugui is a piece of dyed cotton cloth which has always been an essential tool for the Japanese. It was used as a wiping tool such as a towel or a handkerchief, or a headwear. It also came to be used in the place of a greeting card.
Recently people have found even more ways to use it, from place mats to tapestry for decorating their homes.
