|Title||Tsuba with a Rabbit Viewing the Autumn Moon|
English: A rabbit at the lower right of the tsuba looks up at the moon in the upper left. Rabbits are connected to the moon because in Japan the figure that can be seen in the moon is said to be a rabbit pounding rice cakes. The rabbit is also one of the signs of the Chinese zodiac. Reeds are incised into the background of the tsuba. The relief of autumn flowers includes Chinese bell flowers, bamboo leaves, and patrinia. Another rabbit is shown on the reverse, among bamboo leaves. This small tsuba is for a short sword.
