MEGURI – the miracle of chance encounters
When the sun and moon happen to meet in the sky, a magical eclipse occurs; a special and beautiful instant in time is created by a momentary connection, a chance encounter at just the right moment between two entities following their own paths.
This idea that chance encounters carry with them endless potential for joyful occasions, fortuitous connections and happy accidents is what led to the partnership between Miki Tanaka x ITSUMO.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Some animals that come to mind as the twelve zodiac signs are slightly different in China and Japan. This year it is a pig in China, and a boar in Japan.
In the ear when twelve zodiac signs were transferred from China to Japan, since meat eating was not common in Japan, no habit of keeping livestock pigs existed.
It is also said that wild boar meat for the Japanese at the time was a symbol of a disease-free, cure for all kind of illness. Now Wild Boar symbolizes courage and adventure.
In China, it seems that it was distinguished early on as they were raising as livestock for a long time. Pigs are known to be auspicious animals.
May the Year of the Pig (Boar) bring you good fortune and lots of Happiness!
Thank you so much!
