"Go away" Japanese calligraphy

 "" (kyo, saru). It is translated as go away, leave, depart, etc.
 This character is written by Kanzi,
Regular script.

 Excuse me.
 I cannot discover the etymology of this character...
 It may have gone away somewhere.

 In the lifetime, I often have had such experience.
 I will learn from all of your wide knowledge.


  1. Hello Ruma

    Lovey pictures , especially the first one !

    Greetings, Joop

  2. Impressionnant, mais je ne crois pas pouvoir un jour déchiffré ces caractères :)

  3. it's amazing how with a single symbol you can figure out a dozen of images!

  4. The upper part seems "Tsuchi" (=Earth) and the lower it is for sure "Watakushi" (=I). I imagine it may be a person (who moves by himself) plus the world (moving by nature's regulations). Together, the idea of leave.

  5. That reminds me of a bird, with its head down, flying away.

  6. I'm so glad that you wrote me a comment on my blog! Because of this, I could see your work on calligraphy! Fascinates me calligraphy, I really want to learn the art of calligraphy ... I have attempted to draw kanji characters in the style of "Love, " "Faith, " "Honesty, " "Nothing. "
    Now I have the opportunity to watch your blog. Thank you!

  7. At first, 去 sounded sad to me. But, then I thought people leave, so we can have joy to meet them again.

    Now it seems deeply hopeful.

    Thank you!

  8. Impressive work, fabulous!
    I wish you a happy and healthy 2011, full of your fantastic photos.
    Hugs from far and hot Brasil

  9. interesting! the upper part looks like a cross, the lower part looks like a sledgehammer :) thanks for sharing.

  10. ...el mundo de los simbolos y...sus detalles. Me gusta mucho ésta caligrafía. Saludos.

  11. Very interesting, I like your blog...

  12. WOW, I am a fan of languages, in fact, I´m studying linguistics and I can´t believe how symbols can represent letters in some languages, words in anothers and entire sentences in others. currently i´m studying Spanish. I travelled to Argentina to be immersed in the culture of the Spanish language and stayed in a hotel boutique in rosario, one of the most important cities. It is interesting to see how different is the Spanish of Argentina compared to all of those from Latin America.


Thank you for following my blog,
