The Moon Rabbit ('tsuki no usagi') is a motif inspired by mythical East Asian folklore. It is said that the dark markings on the near side of the moon look like a rabbit or hare who is pounding medicine, rice cakes or the elixir of life, depending on which culture the story is told by. The folklore surrounding the Moon Rabbit first originated in China before spreading to other Asian cultures.
