In modern Japanese culture, owls are quite significant. Many Japanese people commonly carry an owl charm. In Japan, owls bring luck and offer protection from suffering.
The reason can be found in the Japanese name for owl, Fukuro フクロウ (梟), which can be written in different sets of characters: One with the meaning of luck (福 fuku, luck; 来ku, to come; 郎 ro suffix used in boys' names), and the other as protection from hardship (不 fu, no, 苦労kurou suffering/hardship).
With its lucky sounding name, owl charms and owl motif decorated items make popular good luck wishing gifts in Japan, and is a great way to wish a friend or loved one good fortune, and a life free from hardship and troubles. Typically gifts bearing the motif of owls are given to loved ones as souvenirs or as special items for well wishing or encouragement. As a result, gifts bearing motif of owls make popular gifts for students at the time of graduation as a fond wish for a smooth sailing journey ahead after graduating from school or college.
