Interesting Japanese postcards...

Postby toni » Tue 06.17.2008 4:10 pm

Tokyokan is a store in Helsinki that sells Japanese stuff, namely food, 着物, utensils and select magazines.

I was browsing their site when I came accross this...

"New postcards (hagaki) with different characters (kanji) and pictures."

(From http://tokyokan.fi/uutiset.html)

Now who would you send a card with 馬鹿 or 禁酒 anyway... :twisted:

Also, I'm totally buying one (or two)!

Obviously someone you know will get so excited about the "cool drawings" that they may end up getting them tattooed.

CAN I get a 馬鹿 tattoed on my forehead? Can someone tell me what it means? I am a hunter and I think the characters mean horse and deer and since I hunt deer and ride horses, it would be perfect..

Yeah, go for it! Deer and horse are very good kanji for tattoos!

It would be almost perfect. You should finish it off with 野郎 to let people know you are an outdoorsman.
