"Holy" Japanese calligraphy



"" (sei, or kiyoi). It is translated as holy, sacred, sage.
This character is written by Kanzi,
Regularscript.

Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
semantic
(ears)  +  phonetic (show, appear)

The cherry blossoms do not talk to us.
They are seen in merely us.
However, they show some irreplaceable thing to us.

  2. This one is interesting. I have noticed the ears instantly. As I am currently learning traditional Chinese, which is common in Taiwan, I am trying to understand each part of a kanji. Ruma-sensei, your blog helps me. Thank you.
