Wheel (Kuruma)

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

Genji cart : This oxcart, also called gosho guruma (cart for the Imperial Palace), was often symbolized by depicting only the wheel of the cart. Since the Fujiwara Period, the wheel was depicted in decorative patterns and later used as family crests. (From 'Family Crests of Japan' ICG Muse, Inc.2001)
