≪ Design ≫
"Counting Rod Break" ("Sangi Kuzushi")
A "sangi" is a tool that was used for calculating sums up until the Muromachi period in Japan (1333-1573). They were also used for fortune telling.
The name "sangi-kuzushi" comes from creating a pattern by jumbling (kuzushi) these sangi rods.
The rods were also used to predict good fortune in the future.
That is why this pattern is also sometimes called "hoping for a happy future."
