The “Tsuru” is a commonly used symbol in Asia to represent longevity. In Japan the “Tsuru” is said to live 1000 years. It represents love and fidelity because they pair for life. The “Minogame” is said to live 10,000 years and is one of the four celestial guardians (North, South, East, and, West). The seaweed tail on the “Minogame” is due to its long life and experiences while transiting the sea and earth. Together they represent peace, and longevity.
