Welcome

Japanese
Japan irasshai mase
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese greeting that you'll hear just about every time you enter a sushi bar, restaurant, or shop in Japan.

This calligraphy would be appropriate to hang by the entry door of your business or shop.

A Traditional Warm Welcome

China huān yíng guāng lín
knob
ribbon top
knob

This would be the ultimate Chinese "welcome mat". Except it will be on your wall, and people will not step on it.

In a somewhat literal translation, you could say it means, "I feel happiness as I welcome you, as you have brought a shining light to this place with your arrival" or in a more simple way, "I am happy you've come as your presents really brightens up the place".

It has become common for this greeting to be announced by the staff upon the arrival of any customer in to a fancy store in China. You will also see these characters on the "welcome mats" in front of 4 and 5 star hotels in China.

Having this on a wall scroll is an extra nice touch. I have seen a few horizontal scrolls with this phrase on the wall behind the reception desk of better hotels, or near the front door of fine shops. At the most fancy department stores and restaurants in China, several greeters (almost always young women) will stand by the front door all wearing sashes with this phrase embroidered on them. As you walk in, they will bow and say "huan ying guang lin" to welcome you to the establishment.

Note: The first two and last two characters do make words in Korean Hanja, but seldom used as a sentence like this in Korean.

Make Guests Feel at Home

Home away from home
China bīn zhì rú guī
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese phrase suggests that a good host will make guests feel like they are returning home or are as comfortable as they would be at their own home.

This is also the Chinese equivalent of, "a home away from home", and is used by Chinese hotels, guest houses, and inns to suggest the level of their hospitality will make you feel at home during your stay.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

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 "welcome" 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 Welcome Kanji, Welcome Characters, Welcome in Mandarin Chinese, Welcome Characters, Welcome in Chinese Writing, Welcome in Japanese Writing, Welcome in Asian Writing, Welcome Ideograms, Chinese Welcome symbols, Welcome Hieroglyphics, Welcome Glyphs, Welcome in Chinese Letters, Welcome Hanzi, Welcome in Japanese Kanji, Welcome Pictograms, Welcome in the Chinese Written-Language, or Welcome in the Japanese Written-Language.
