トンボ (Tonbo) , the Japanese name of dragonfly, represents Japan, and symbolizes courage, strength and happiness.
Dragonfly, has always been considered a “special insect" in Japan. In ancient times, Japan was named "Akitsu shima", meaning "Dragonfly's Island". According to Japan’s earliest official history book, Emperor Jimmu Tenno, once stood upon a mountain and remarked that the land resembled a circle of tombo, or two dragonflies mating. This shows the significance of the dragonfly in Japan culture.
In addition, dragonfly also known as “katsumushi”, literally translates to victory insect. As they only fly forward and do not fly backwards, just like a good warrior. To the samurai, the dragonfly became a symbol of bravery, and never giving up until victory is achieved. Samurai, or the people of power, wore kimonos with dragonfly designs to show authority and strength.
