Best Friends

China zhì jiāo
knob
ribbon top
knob

This an alternate way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most", "extreme" or "best". The second character means "making friends" or "building friendship". There's sort of a suggestion with the second character that fate caused you to intersect in life and become friends (that character can mean intersection in some context).

This can also mean "most intimate friend", "very good friend of long standing", or "closest friend".

Best Friends / Buddies

China qīn yǒu
Japan shin yuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese way to say "best friend".

The first character can mean "relative" or sometimes "parents". The second character means "friend". Think about the close relationship that Japanese people have with their parents and relatives, and this starts to mean "close friends".

Some Japanese-English dictionaries also translate this as "bosom friend", "old friend", "intimate friend", "buddy", "crony" or "chum".

Note that in Chinese, this has the meaning of "relatives and friends". It's a good meaning in Chinese, but it's not quite the same as "best friends".

Best Friends / Closest Friend

China zhì yǒu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most", "extreme" or "best".
The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in China).

Can also be translated as "close friend" or "most intimate friend".

knob
ribbon top
knob

This is Japanese expressing meaning, "extremely good friends" or "best friends".

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

Chinese
China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
knob

This is exactly what the title suggests. This means friends that are eternal or a friendship that will last forever - you will remain the best of friends as long as you live.

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

The middle character links the words (it's a possessive article).

The last two characters represent friendship, or simply "friends".

Best Love / Most Sincere Love

China zhì ài
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can mean the best love or most sincere love of your life. This could be a romantic love such as the love you have for your spouse or a boyfriend / girlfriend. It can also apply to the extreme love you have for your children or a parent, and maybe a really good friend.

Together Forever in Love

This is the shorter, somewhat lyrical version of this phrase.

心 heart / mind / soul

Forever In My Heart

Japanese
Japan i tsu ma de mo watashi no kokoro no naka ni
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means, "forever in my heart" or "always in my heart" in Japanese.

Forever In My Heart

Japanese
Japan ei en ni watashi no kokoro no naka ni
knob
ribbon top

This means, "forever in my heart" or "always in my heart" in Japanese.

The character breakdown:
永遠 (eien) eternity; perpetuity; immortality; permanence.
に (ni) indicates location of a person or thing.
私の (watashi no) my; mine.
心の中 (kokoro no naka) the middle of one's mind; the midst of one's heart.
に (ni) indicates location of a person or thing (makes this "in" the middle of one's heart).


Note: There's more than one way to say "Forever in My Heart" in Japanese, so you'll find another version in our database. This is the very verbose version.

Eternal Friendship
Friends Forever

Japanese
Japan ei en no yuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

The first two characters mean eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love, of the eternal kind".

The last character is "friend" or "Friendship".

China zhì yǒu
knob
ribbon top

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "honest" or "most sincere". The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in Chinese).

Friend / Friendship

Single Character
China yǒu
Japan tomo
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the simplest way to express the idea of friends or friendship in Chinese. It can mean friend, companion, or pal in Japanese. In Korean, it can mean friend, companion, or associate.

This single characters is open to interpretation, so it can mean different things to different people (not necessarily a bad thing, as you can decide what it means to you). If you want a more concisely-defined word, you should probably pick one of our multi-character friendship-related words.

This is the most common way to say "friend" in Japanese.

Best

China zhì
Japan shi
knob
ribbon top
knob

It's a little strange, but this would be the character which means "best" or "extreme" in Chinese and Korean. The problem is, this is seldom used alone. It's mostly used in combination with other characters to make words like "best friend", "best food", and "best love".

We do not recommend this character for a wall scroll. It's better if you find a more specific term that fits your circumstances.

Note: This can be pronounced in Japanese, and has similar meaning, but it is rarely if ever used in modern Japanese.

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.
