"Warsaw" Japanese calligraphy
"華沙" (War saw). It is translated as Warsaw of Polish capital.
This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.
The world main city can be written in Kanji letter.
The kanji is an ideograph, but there is not the meaning in particular on these letters combination themself. However, the individual letter has a good meaning.
Etymology : 華 (Flowery) + 沙 (sand)
It is usage of a special kanji "ateji" called.
It is post before "巴里 (Paris) " is use same as like this.
The city name of this kanji is the most gorgeous in the same kind.
I imagine that the ancient people created "華沙" (Warsaw) as the city where flowers bloom.
The combination of this kanji is very good for spring.
