The genesis of the Japanese Dice Set is strongly influenced by Virtues derived from the old traditions of the Samurai, known in the West mainly in an embellished, romantic version. This is completely sufficient to transfer certain elements to our times, creating a vision of the Samurai as a man not only trained in combat but also having adamant willpower, unrelenting self-discipline, and a strong system of values. According to the Bushido Code, these noble warriors were a great example of what every man and woman should strive to be in their lives.
The Bushido Code is represented by seven major Virtues, originally called Gi, Rei, Yu, Meiyo, Jin, Makoto, and Chu – translated as Integrity, Respect, Courage, Honor, Compassion, Honesty, and Loyalty, respectively. We wanted our Japanese Dice to reflect these Virtues in a non-obvious but eloquent way. We know that our fans are gifted with great imagination, so we allow ourselves the following interpretation.
The Deep Night Firefly set represents the Bushido Code by picking up the gauntlet – facing both internal and external challenges. No matter how dark the night is, no matter how deep is the darkness surrounding us – there is always hope for a new dawn. The light in the dark includes both the stars and the fireflies dancing over the clearing; even the smallest flicker of hope is worth sustaining and gives strength to face adversities. The golden color on a black background personifies Courage and Honor, the virtues we all have, which shine with a warm glow whenever we reach in for them in our clashes with fate – whatever form it takes. The Deep Night Firefly is a set that symbolizes your inner strength, thanks to which you will emerge victorious from every adventure!
Light in the darkness.
