Tsuru Kame Design (Crane and turtle design) Designs of crane and turtle combination have been featured on all sorts of items from expensive kimono robes and lacquer-coated dressers to cheap everyday items such as tenugui towel, cell phone straps, rice bowls and so on. As a Japanese expression goes, gtsuru wa sennen, kame wa mannenh (a crane lives a thousand years, a turtle ten thousand years); they have long been a symbol of longevity and bearers of good fortune. Both cranes and turtles actually have long lives compared to other animals. Cranes have only one partner in their life, making it a perfect symbol for weddings. The hexagonal pattern on turtlesf backs have been regarded as auspicious as well.
