About Patternz.jp

WHO WE ARE

Patternz.jp is a team of a writer and a photographer exploring patterns (Japanese and everything), history, and culture. Born and raised in the northeast part of Japan, we took our culture for granted. Moved to the United States gave us the opportunity to reflect our own culture. What makes a Japanese culture unique and what we share in common with others?

WHAT WE DO

Through digging Japanese history, we believe we can find more beauty through exploring patterns, designs, and spirits backed by our curiosity. We share the thoughts and images for the better understanding of what the country with the world’s largest history can offer. Enjoy exploring and discovering insights with us.

    • Thanks for writing us, Mickie.

      Well, each family has each Kamon in Japan and even with the same family name, it doesn’t mean two different Sasano families have the same Kamon. So if you could provide us the birthplace of each family (region or Prefecture), it would lead us somewhere as a start.

      You can write us at http://www.patternz.jp/product/kamon-custom.

      Thank you.
