Comments For the Japanese, gourds signified happiness or success and most importantly.... good luck. Their sometimes comic shapes appealed to the Japanese sense of humor.
After the gourds were cleaned and dried, they were often decorated for use as water, alcohol, medicine flasks or seed containers. They were especially favored for seed storage, and legend often repeated that the seeds held in gourds always bloomed successfully.
