Kaioke (bucket for clamshells)
In Japan, there is a traditional play of court nobles called kaiawase (matching clamshells) since the Heian period. Since one must find a clamshell which matches perfectly with the other, this game came to be used for ceremonies which promise matrimonial happiness, and the bucket to put these clamshells also became an auspicious motif to be painted on kimono. Traditionally two buckets are depicted as a pair, to wish for happiness of a couple.
