Warm Japanese style Tabi socks: Akabeko Red cow Traditional Japanese toy pattern
This beautiful tabi pattern represents a legendary animal from the Aizu region. The legend says that after the construction of the Enzojo-ji Temple, a red cow called "Akabeko" (Aka/red and Beko/cow in Aizu dialect) refused to leave the temple, showing a great devotion to Buddha. Akabeko became a representation of persistence and strength, bringing happiness to the local people. It is still a loved figure within the Aizu region. The sight of an adorable Akabeko toy shaking its head up and down brings smiles to our face and creates an inner sense of peace within us. It will surely bring you happiness too!
