Tree (matsu) and geometric images.

Since ancient times, the Japanese have believed that powerful deities dwell within pine trees, especially in the large, grandiose ones. The pine tree myth predates Buddhism and comes directly from Shintoism where it is believed that divine spirits reside within the pines that commonly shelter Shinto shrines.

The pine is a symbol of longevity and it's believed gods freely descend into then. A Japanese mythical tale says that two pine trees growing close together were said to be the spirits of a forever faithful married couple.
