Wind

China fēng
Japan kaze
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means wind in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja. It can also mean air, breeze, or draft. Used as a metaphore, it can mean style or manner.


See Also...  Kamikaze

Storm / Windstorm

Best for Japanese audience
China bào fēng
Japan baku fuu / bou fuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja word for storm (can also mean gale, tempest, typhoon, hurricane, gale, violent wind, or windstorm - especially in Korean and Chinese).

If the meaning of storm is somehow important or significant to you, these are the Kanji you want.

The first Kanji means violent or sudden. The second Kanji means wind.

This also means storm in Chinese, but more in regards to a wind storm than a general storm. It's about the same for this word in Korean.

Overcome: Regardless of the Rain and Wind

China fēng yǔ wú zǔ
knob
ribbon top
knob

This proverb is often translated as, "Go ahead as planned regardless of the weather" or, "[Overcome] despite the rain and wind".

This Chinese proverb suggests that you are willing (or should be willing) to overcome any adversity, and accomplish your task at hand.

There is a second/optional part to this phrase which suggests that you should do this together with someone (see our other 8-character version if you want the full phrase).

Wind and Rain

China fēng yǔ
Japan fuu-u
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is wind and rain in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This can also refer to the elements or trials and hardships (in life).

Kamikaze / Divine Wind

Japan kami kaze
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the famous title used during WWII to describe Japanese fighter plane pilots, many of whom performed suicide attacks by flying their planes into ships and other Allied targets.

The Japanese word, Kamikaze actually means "divine wind".

Furinkazan

military strategy
China fēng lín huǒ shān
Japan fuu rin ka zan
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the battle strategy and proverb of Japanese feudal lord Takeda Shingen (1521–1573 A.D.). This came from the Art of War by Chinese strategist and tactician Sun Tzu (Sunzi).

You can think of this as a sort of abbreviation to remind officers and troops how to conduct battle.

This is literally a word list: Wind, Forest, Fire, Mountain.

The more expanded meaning is supposed to be...

"Swift as wind, quiet as forest, fierce as fire, and immovable as a mountain"

"As fast as the wind, as quiet as the forest, as daring as fire, and immovable as the mountain"

"Move as swift as a wind, stay as silent as forest, attack as fierce as fire, undefeatable defense like a mountain"

"Move swiftly like the wind, stay silent like the forest, attack fiercely like fire, take tactical position on the mountain"

Feng Shui

China fēng shuǐ
Japan fuu sui
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the famous technique and approach to arranging your home externally around natural features, and internally to create balance and peace.

These two characters literally mean "wind water". Obviously the title is far more simple than the concept behind this subject.

It may enlighten you slightly to know that the character for "wind" can also mean "style", "custom" or "manner" in some context. This may apply somewhat to this title.

In a very technical sense, this title is translated as "Chinese geomancy".

Storm

China fēng bào
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Chinese word for storm.

If the meaning of storm is somehow important or significant to you, these are the characters you want.

The first character means wind, and the second means violent or sudden.


Note: This would be understood in Korean Hanja, however, Koreans would generally use these characters in reverse order.

Five Elements

Japanese
Japan chi sui ka fuu kuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the specifically-Japanese version of the five elements. This is a little different than the ancient or original Chinese version.

The elements are written in this order:
1. Earth / Terra / Ground
2. Water
3. Fire
4. Wind / Air
5. Sky / Emptiness / Void / Ether

Note: This set of Kanji can also be romanized as "ji sui ka fuu kuu", "jisuikafuukuu", or "jisuikafuku".


These can also be written in the order 地火風水空 (chi ka sui fuu kuu). Let me know when you place your order if you want the Kanji to be in this character order.

Great Ambitions

Brave the wind and the waves
China chéng fēng pò làng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese proverb represents having great ambitions. British might say "to plough through". Another way to understand it is, "surmount all difficulties and forge ahead courageously".

This can also be translated as, "braving the wind and waves" or "to brave the wind and the billows".

Literally it reads: "ride [the] wind [and] break/cleave/cut [the] waves", or "ride [the] wind [and] slash [through the] waves".

This is a great proverb to encourage yourself or someone else not to be afraid of problems or troubles, and when you have a dream just go for it.

Do not fear the task,
cooperation will lead to success

Do not fear strong winds waves; just be sure to row in unison
China bù pà fēng làng dà jiù pà jiǎng bù qí
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese proverb literally translates as: Do not fear strong winds [and] high waves; what [one should] worry about whether or not you're rowing in unison.

Figuratively, this means: However difficult the task, the key to success lies in making collective efforts.

I like to translate this as, "Don't sweat the details, just get together and get it done".

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