On the tray itself are the wedded rocks, referred to by the Japanese culture as Izanagi and Izanami. They are considered to be husband and wife. According to legend, it is from this couple,that all the Japanese islands arose. They are joined by sacred ropes known as Shimenawa. On one of the tobacco tis is the famousHimeji castle.On the other tin is a samurai. The back of the tray come up to form the Fuji Mt. I believe this is from the Edo period. I am asking 200.00 or best offer.
