HAPPY ANIMALS [Swallow]
In early spring, swallows build nests under the eaves of houses. If there are people near the nest, it is believed that predators like crows and cats won’t attack them. From long ago, people believe swallows bring good fortune, since the kind of house they instinctively choose is one that will not meet with disaster.
HAPPY ANIMALS [Fox]
Foxes have always been respected as guardian spirits by rice farmers because they kill vermin. Also their bushy, reddish-brown tails resemble mature rice stalks. Nowadays, foxes represent good luck for businesses and other endeavors.
HAPPY ANIMALS [Owl]
In Japanese, the word for owl is “fukuro,” which also means “no hardship.” Owls are happy birds that never suffer difficulties. Also, owls can move their heads around in a wide arc so that they can observe their surroundings. People think owls bring business prosperity and better study results.
HAPPY ANIMALS [Prawn]
Prawns symbolize long life and good health because they have long “whiskers” and bent backs, and yet jump about in a lively manner. They also repeatedly shed their carapace, which suggests growth and rebirth. Their bulging eyes represent happy times.
