Maiwai originated in the Edo period in Japan and refers to the festive attire worn by fishermen to celebrate a bountiful catch. It was prevalent along the Pacific coast from Aomori Prefecture in the north to Shizuoka Prefecture in the south, featuring numerous auspicious patterns and vibrant colors. The indigo dyeing cloth painting technique, which is designated as a traditional craft in the prefecture, symbolizes Chiba Prefecture's connection with the ocean. The turtle and crane depicted in the picture coincide with the Japanese saying "cranes live for a thousand years, turtles for ten thousand," implying longevity and good fortune, mascots for enduring friendship.
