Team Name Origin:
One of the most famous Japanese folk tales is Momotaro. In the story, Momotaro goes to exterminate demons to protect his village from them. On his journey, he gives proverbial dumplings to a monkey, a dog, and a pheasant, and they become his comrades in the extermination of demons. Okayama is considered to be a place associated with Momotaro, as it is home to Kibitsu Shrine, where Kibitsuhiko-no-mikoto, the model for Momotaro, is worshipped. The pheasant in this story is called Fasiano in Italian. The name "Fasiano" became the team name.
