Butterfly(Cho)
These family crests (In Japanese, KAMON) are called 'Cho-Mon' in JAPAN.

Butterflies have been used in patterns since the Nara Period. These designs were used not only for clothes and furnishings but also for armor, helmets, and other battle gear. Both samurai and court nobles loved butterfly designs. (From 'Family Crests of Japan' ICG Muse, Inc.2001)
