Little Tokyo

This symbol I found outside a sushi restaurant in Little Tokyo.  It also happens to be the family crest on my Mother's side of the family.  It is two feathers.

Apparently, or so I have been told.  It was also the crest of Asano Naganori - the feudal lord who inspired such loyalty from the 47 Samurai in the famous Japanese story.

Not sure what it has to do with the sushi restaurant but whatever...
