The ribbon is inspired by shimenama or “enclosing rope”, which is used for ritual purification and is often found at Shinto shrines. Shimenama is said to represent the boundary between the world of Kami (Japanese Gods) and the human world.
The bow and arrow are designed in red and black color. The character on the arrow means “Determination”.
The armor is a simplified version of the armor worn by samurais, matching the light armor on the arm, making Hakuro look agile and relaxed. While the dovetail skirt adds a touch of elegance to Hakuro’s overall appearance.
