Good Health

China jiàn kāng
Japan kenkou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the best way to express good health in Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

These characters also suggest the ideas of being solid, strong, sound, wholesome and at peace.

Can also be used to express "healthy," "vitality," or "well-being."

Good Health / Healthy / Vigor

Also suggests being at peace
China kāng
Japan kou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a single character that means good health or vigor in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This character can also mean peaceful, at ease, or abundant in some contexts.

Please note that this is rarely seen alone in Japanese Kanji. In Japanese, it is used both for health-related compound words and to denote the kouhou through koushou eras of Japan.

In Korean, this can also be the family name "Kang" (caution: not the only family name romanized as Kang in Korean).

Peace and Good Health

China ān kāng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This means just what it says. It's a word that expresses both the idea of being at peace and healthy at the same time.

Note: This is a bona-fide word in Chinese and Korean, and the characters will at least make sense in Japanese.

Restoration to Good Health

China píng fù
Japan byou fuku
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This Chinese and Japanese title means "to be cured," "to be healed," "restoration to health," or "recovery from illness."

In some context, it can mean "to pacify" or "to calm down."

Vitality

China shēng mìng lì
Japan seimeiryoku
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This word can mean "vitality" or "libido." The first two characters mean "life" or "life force." The last character is a common word that means "strength." So together you get the meaning "life strength" which is the essence of vitality. Some will also translate this word as "good health."

Wellness

China shēn tǐ jiàn kāng
Japan shin tai ken kou
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is how to express "wellness" in Chinese. The meaning is not much different than the idea of "good health." In fact, the first two characters alone are often translated as "health." Some will also translate this title as "physical health."

If you want to fill your room with a feeling of wellness, this is the wall scroll for you.

This is also the ancient way to express wellness in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja. The modern Japanese form is only different on the second Kanji but Koreans have completely changed their common writing system in the last 100 years.

Robust / Sturdy

China qiáng jiàn
Japan kyouken
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This means robustness or sturdiness in regards to being healthy and fit. This can also be used to say "persistently good health."

Strong / Healthy

China jiàn
Japan ken
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This "strong" character is the more "healthy" version of strong. This is the "strong" that is appropriate for an athlete.

Beyond "healthy," it can also mean strength, persistence, vigorous or invigorated.

Strong / Healthy

Japan sukoyaka
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a verbose way to say strong and healthy in Japanese. This is the "strong" that is appropriate for an athlete.

Beyond "healthy," it can also mean strength, persistence, vigorous or invigorated.

Japanese also use the first Kanji to mean the same thing. This version just adds two hiragana which serve to emphasize or amplify the word and clarify the meaning.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Healthy Living

China jiàn kāng shēng huó
Japan kenkou seikatsu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

If you are into healthy living, this might be an excellent selection for a wall scroll to hang in your home.

The first two characters speak of health, vitality, vigor, and being of sound body. The second two characters mean living or life (daily existence).


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
