- Cranes (Birds)
- flowers - The reproductive portions of any plant in the division Angiospermae, flowering plants. As popularly used, the term "flower" especially applies when part or all of the reproductive structure is distinctive in color and form.
- Gruidae - Members of a family containing 15 living species of tall wading birds with very long legs, neck, and bill. Cranes resemble herons but are usually larger and have a partly naked head, a heavier bill, more compact plumage, and an elevated hind toe. Cranes are ancient in origin, found in Eocene deposits in North America.

- Japanese - Nationality, periods, cultures, and styles found in Japan, either in historical times or in the present.
- Meiji - Period and style that coincides with the rule of emperor Mutsuhito, called Meiji, from 1868 to 1912. The period is characterized by a transformation from feudalism to a modern industrial state, taking western nations as a model. After the Vienna Exposition of 1873, artists were encouraged to produce traditional arts and crafts for export, such as carvings in wood and ivory and laquer. The art of the period also saw the influence of western art and architecture.
- monkeys - Common term referring to the New World monkeys and the Old World monkeys, two of the three groupings of simian primates, the third of which is the apes. There are over 250 known living species of monkey. Because of their similarity to monkeys, apes are often called "monkeys" in informal usage. Furthermore, some monkey species have the word "ape" in their common name, causing further confusion. Because monkeys are not a single coherent group, they do not all share any particular traits that are not also shared with the apes.
- oban - Japanese prints of a standard size about 15 3/4 by 10 1/2 inches.
- swords - Edged weapons consisting basically of a blade, generally longer than that of daggers or knives, and a grip; designed for delivering cutting or thrusting blows or both.
- Ukiyo-e - Distinctive genre in painting and other media, but most prominently in woodblock printing. It arose in the Edo period (1600-1868) and built up a broad popular market among the middle classes. Subject matter typically focused on brothel districts and kabuki theatres, with formats ranging from single sheet prints to book illustrations. Generally, the style is characterized by a mixture of the realistic narrative of the Kamakura period and the mature decorative style of the Momoyama and Edo periods. Distinctive styles and specialties in subject matter were developed by different schools throughout the period.
- warriors - Those trained for or engaged in the physical combat of warfare, especially close hand-to-hand combat, and designated for or sanctioned in that function by the society or group for which they fight, irrespective of membership in an army. Includes men of the warrior age grade in certain pre-literate societies, as for instance, among some East African pastoral societies. For members of an army, whether directly involved in combat or in other duties, use "soldiers."
- woodcuts - Prints made using the process of woodcut, which is a relief process in which the design is cut into and printed from the plank side of a wood block; distinct from "wood engraving (process)," which is a relief process using the grain end of a wood block.
