This is a two-character word used often in Chinese, old Korean, and ancient Japanese to express beauty.
I've had a few requests for a "two-character beautiful" and this is by far the best word. This is not a common word for an Asian person to want on a wall scroll. However, you will see it commonly used as an adjective in phrases, stories, and titles throughout magazines and signage in China.
This word can also be translated as gorgeous or lovely.
Note: This word is not common in modern Japan.
This word is often used to describe the beauty of a woman. However, when applied to a man, it can mean handsome. It's also the first character in the word for "beauty salon" which you will see all over China and Japan.
This can be used as the given name for a girl (spell it or say it as "Mei" or "May").
For a bit of trivia: The title for the "USA" in Chinese is "Mei Guo" which literally means "Beautiful Country." This name was bestowed at a time before Chairman Mao came to power and decided that China didn't like the USA anymore (even though we fought together against the Japanese in WWII). But these days, Chinese people love Americans (but have distaste for American politics and policy). But I digress...
This is also how "Beautiful" is written in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja. This character can also mean: very satisfactory; good; to be pleased with oneself; abbreviation for the USA; fine; handsome; admirable; madhura; sweet; pleasant.
This means beautiful heart, beautiful mind, or beautiful spirit in Chinese.
These two characters create a word that means, "harmonious" or, "in perfect harmony." The deeper meaning or more natural translation would be something like, "beautiful life."
The first character means peace and harmony.
The second character means beautiful. But in this case, when combined with the first character, beautiful refers to being satisfied with what you have in your life. This can be having good relations, good feelings, comfort, and having enough (with no feeling of wanting).
Note: In Japanese, this is often used as the name "Wami." This title is probably more appropriate if your audience is Chinese.
This means, "Beautiful Soul" in Chinese.
The first two characters mean beautiful, beauty, or gorgeous.
The middle character connects the ideas (a possessive article).
The last two characters mean soul or spirit.
This is a common way to write "Beautiful Soul" in Japanese.
This is a very short or abbreviated way to say, "Beautiful Soul" in Japanese. There is a longer version that might be a little more natural and also closer to the intended meaning. This short title is often translated awkwardly as, "Beauty Soul" from Japanese.
This word written in Chinese or Korean Hanja can also mean "grace of character" or "noble virtue."
There is a slight variation in the modern Japanese Kanji form of the second character. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people (it's the ancient Japanese form anyway).
In Chinese, this means Goddess of Beauty.
The first character means beauty or beautiful.
The second character means spirit (can also mean god, goddess, or soul).
Some will use this as a short way to say, "Beautiful Spirit."
This has a similar meaning in Japanese but is used more often as a female given name in Japan. As a Japanese given name, it can be pronounced Mikami, Mikan, or Binasu.
This means, "beautiful heart" or "beautiful mind," in Japanese.
The word for "heart" also means "mind" and sometimes "soul" in ancient Asia.
This is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.

This is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.
Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character way to express this but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.

In Chinese, this means "Beautiful Life," or "The Good Life."
We don't really have a word like this in English but these two characters create a word that means "strong and beautiful." It could also be translated as "healthy and beautiful."
Note: This is a word in Chinese and Korean but it's also the family name Takemi in Japanese. The characters hold the same meaning in Japanese but It's kind of like having the English name Stillwell, when few people would perceive the meanings of still and well.
This means "life is good," "life is great," or "life is beautiful" in Japanese.
The first two characters mean "life" (as in your or a human lifespan).
The third character kind of means "is."
The last five characters are a long adjective that means wonderful, splendid, and/or magnificent. In the context of life it reads more like good or beautiful.
This means "life is good" in Chinese.
The first two characters mean "life" or "living."
The last two characters mean "good" or "beautiful."
This can be translated as beautiful view, beautiful scenery, or beautiful sight.
Note: Not a commonly used word in modern Japanese.
This means, a beauty; beautiful (woman); princess; young lady of noble birth; girl; small & lovely.
This is used a bit more commonly in Chinese than Japanese.
Note: This can be the female given name "Hime" in Japanese.
This is a common way to write "Beautiful Spirit" in Japanese.
This means, "Beautiful Mind" in Chinese.
This is also the Chinese title of the 2001 movie of the same name.
This is how to write beautiful princess in Chinese. The first two characters mean feminine beauty, or rather a way to say beautiful that only applies to women. The middle character is just a connecting character. The last two characters mean princess.

This Japanese Kanji title means beautiful weather, clear and cloudless sky, or clear weather. It's a little odd but if you literally-translated this phrase, it says, "Japanese weather," as if that was an indication of perfect weather (maybe a little arrogant on behalf of Japan - I've experienced a monsoon there, which was unpleasant).

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
