Lucky / Auspicious

China
Japan kichi
knob
ribbon top
knob

A simple way to express the state of being lucky. Also used in conversation to hope that all is well with someone. This is more often seen as part of a compound word with a lucky association (especially in Korean).


Not as often used in Japanese, but still means "good luck" but can also mean "joy" in Japanese.


See Also...  Good Luck

Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

China xìng
Japan saki / sachi / rei / rē
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can mean happiness, good fortune, good luck, and in the old days, good harvest or bounty.

Note: From Japanese, this character is sometimes romanized as "sachi", and is often pronounced "kou" or sometimes "rei" when used in compound words with other Kanji.

Serendipity / Lucky Coincidence

Japanese only
Japan kou un na guu zen
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is one of many ways to express serendipity in Japanese.

The first two Kanji mean fortunate, lucky, fortune, or good luck.

In the middle is a Japanese Hiragana character that serves to connect these words/ideas together.

The last two Kanji mean incidentally, by chance, randomly, unexpectedly, suddenly, accident, fortuity, or by coincidence.

Good Luck

China xìng yùn
Japan kou un
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can be translated as "good luck", "fortunate", "lucky" and/or "good fortune" in Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Occasionally, this is also translated as a type of happiness or a short way to write serendipity.

Soldier of Fortune

Japanese
Japan fuu un ji
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is "soldier of fortune" in Japanese. It can also be read as, "lucky adventurer" or "adventurer who takes advantage of troubled times".

Survivor

China xìng cún zhě
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the most common way to express "survivor" in Chinese. It literally means "lucky/fortunate surviving person".

This is kind of an odd selection for a wall scroll, but there is no better way to say survivor in Chinese calligraphy.

Good Luck / Good Fortune

China
Japan fuku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Character is pronounced "fu" in Chinese.

The character "fu" is posted by virtually all Chinese people on the doors of their homes during the Spring Festival (closely associated with the Chinese New Years).

One tradition from the Zhou Dynasty (beginning in 256 B.C.) holds that putting a fu symbol on your front door will keep the goddess of poverty away.

This character literally means good fortune, prosperity, blessed, happiness, and fulfillment.


See Also...  Lucky

Even a fool may sometimes come up with a good idea

China qiān lǜ yī dé
Japan senryonoittoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This literally means, "1000 tries, 1 success", or "[a] thousand tries [leads to] one success".

This is a humble way to take of your success, ideas, or accomplishments. As if you are a fool who just got lucky in inventing or creating something.

Translations for this proverb include:
Even without any notable ability on my part, I may still get it right sometimes by good luck.
Even a fool may sometimes come up with a good idea.

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.

If you have not set up your computer to display Chinese, the characters in this table probably look like empty boxes or random text garbage.
This is why I spent hundreds of hours making images so that you could view the characters in the "lucky symbol" listings above.
If you want your Windows computer to be able to display Chinese characters you can either head to your Regional and Language options in your Win XP control panel, select the [Languages] tab and click on [Install files for East Asian Languages]. This task will ask for your Win XP CD to complete in most cases. If you don't have your Windows XP CD, or are running Windows 98, you can also download/run the simplified Chinese font package installer from Microsoft which works independently with Win 98, ME, 2000, and XP. It's a 2.5MB download, so if you are on dial up, start the download and go make a sandwich.

Some people may refer to this entry as Lucky Kanji, Lucky Characters, Lucky in Mandarin Chinese, Lucky Characters, Lucky in Chinese Writing, Lucky in Japanese Writing, Lucky in Asian Writing, Lucky Ideograms, Chinese Lucky symbols, Lucky Hieroglyphics, Lucky Glyphs, Lucky in Chinese Letters, Lucky Hanzi, Lucky in Japanese Kanji, Lucky Pictograms, Lucky in the Chinese Written-Language, or Lucky in the Japanese Written-Language.
