Name Postcard in Kanji

"Kanji" is Japanese character that each character has a variety of pronunciations and meanings.

Depending on the combination of them, it is possible to create a variety of names.

 

For example, Emma /émə/ can be various Kanji names as follow;

   

   笑満:笑/é/- smile

              満/mə/ - full, fully

 

   恵真:恵/é/- blessing, charity

              真/mə/ - true, truth

 

You can choose your favorite meanings of Kanjis by yourself, which similarly pronounce your name. Then we write your name with handwriting.

Let's create Your Own Kanji Name which has great meanings! 

 

In addition, our artworks are really good as gifts for your family members and friends :)

Shall we create the Kanji Name Postcards for them?

It will be a good experience for you to watch a live performance of Japanese calligraphy!
