Beauty / Beautiful / Handsome

China měi
Japan bi
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beauty / Beautiful Princess

China yuàn
Japan hime
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful

China měi lí
Japan birei
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

You are always a beauty in your lover's eyes

China qíng rén yǎn lǐ chū xī shī
knob
ribbon top
knob

Any woman with affection for Asian art and you will love a gift of this Chinese proverb calligraphy on a wall scroll. She will melt in your arms as you tell her the meaning of these characters.

Contained in this phrase is a reference to the most beautiful woman in Chinese history. Her name was Xi Shi, and she was known to have good looks that need not fine robes or make up. Her charms were so powerful that she brought down an entire kingdom (in a successful effort to bring honor and pride back to her people).

This is a great way to express that the woman in your life is your one love.

Goddess of Beauty / Beautiful Spirit

China měi shén
Japan mikami
knob
ribbon top
knob

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 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.

Eternal Beauty

China yǒng héng de měi
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is how to write "Eternal Beauty" in Chinese.

Inner Beauty / Beauty of Spirit

China nèi zài měi
knob
ribbon top
knob

This three-character title speaks of beauty on the inside. It's not about outward or physical beauty, but rather the inner beauty possessed by someone. This can also be translated as "beauty of spirit".

Inner Beauty / Inner Wisdom

China nèi xiù
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is an interesting word in Chinese. It simultaneously means inner beauty and inner wisdom. Some will translate it as "intelligent but unassuming". Basically, it's about having unexpected ability or traits on the inside which are not immediately obvious on the outside.

Beauty Shop / Beauty Salon

China měi róng diàn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is how to write "Beauty Shop" or "Beauty Salon". If you own such a business, this would make a nice wall scroll to hang up - and many of your Asian customers will be able to read and appreciate it. When traveling in China, you will see signs like this in the window of any place that offers full services of hair styling, manicures, pedicures, and often shampoo with head and back massage.

However, as a handmade wall scroll, this becomes a very fancy piece of artwork that shows the high class of your business (a great sign for your window, if you don't get direct sunlight).

Inner Beauty
Beauty of Spirit

Japan nai men bi
knob
ribbon top
knob

This three-character title speaks of beauty on the inside. It's not about outward or physical beauty, but rather the inner beauty possessed by someone. This can also be translated as "beauty of spirit".

Beauty: The art of makeup / cosmetics

China měi róng
Japan biyou
knob
ribbon top
knob

In Chinese, this is the title for the art of beauty, as applying makeup or cosmetics to enhance beauty.

Note: In Japanese and Korean, this takes the meaning of beautiful face or beauty of figure or form. Be sure you know who your audience is, and have matched the desired meaning.

Beauty of Nature

Ka-Chou-Fuu-Getsu
Japan ka chou fuu getsu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese Kanji proverb for "Beauties of Nature".

The dictionary definition is, "the traditional themes of natural beauty in Japanese aesthetics".

The Kanji each represent an element of nature that constitute beauty in traditional Japanese art and culture.

The Kanji breakdown:
花 = ka = flower (also pronounced "hana")
鳥 = chou = bird (also pronounced "tori").
風 = fuu = wind (also pronounced "kaze").
月 = getsu = moon (also pronounced "tsuki")

Beauty Salon

China měi róng yuàn
Japan biyouin
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means beauty salon, lady's hair parlor, beauty parlor, or hairdressing salon, in Chinese and Japanese.

Beautiful Soul

China měi lì de líng hún
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful Soul

Japan utsukushii tamashii
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a common way to write "Beautiful Soul" in Japanese.

Beautiful Soul

Japan bi tamashi
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Spirit

China měi lì de xīn líng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means beautiful heart, beautiful mind, or beautiful spirit in Chinese.

Beautiful Life / Life in Perfect Harmony

China hé měi
Japan wa mi
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful Virtue

China měi dé
Japan bitoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This word written in Chinese or Korean Hanja can also mean "grace of character" or "noble virtue".


徳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).

Beautiful Princess

China měi lì de gōng zhǔ
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful Girl

China měi lì de gū niang
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.


See Also...  Beautiful Woman

Beautiful Woman

China měi lì de nǚ rén
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.

Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character 美女 way to express this, but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.


See Also...  Beautiful Girl

Strong and Beautiful

China jiàn měi
Japan takemi
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Beautiful Clear Sky

Japan nihonbare
knob
ribbon top
knob

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).

Beautiful Sight

China měi jǐng
Japan bi kei
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can be translated as beautiful view, beautiful scenery, or beautiful sight.

Note: Not a commonly-used word in modern Japanese.

The Good Life / Beautiful Life

China měi hǎo de shēng huó
knob
ribbon top
knob

In Chinese, this means "Beautiful Life", or "The Good Life".

Beautiful Spirit

Japan utsukushi seishin
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a common way to write "Beautiful Spirit" in Japanese.

Elegant / Exquisite / Grace

China měi miào
Japan bimyou
knob
ribbon top
knob

Beyond elegant and exquisite elegance, this is also the word used to say "beautiful" or "marvelous" when referring to a work of art.

Can also be translated as exquisiteness, gracefulness.

Note: Not a commonly-used word in Japanese.

Princess

Japan oujo
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a Japanese title that means princess.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

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.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

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.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

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.
