Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

China xìng
Japan saki / sachi / rei / rē
Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

幸 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.

Good Luck

China xìng yùn
Japan kou un
Good Luck

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.

Happiness

China xìng fú
Japan koufuku
Happiness

幸福 is a general state of "happiness" which can also be translated as truly-blessed, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

Miyuki / Shinkou / Shinko

Japan miyuki / shinkou
Miyuki / Shinkou / Shinko

These Kanji can be a Japanese surname Shinkou or Shinko, and a Japanese female given name Miyuki.

Technically, this means moving a shine to a new location but seldom used in that context.

Survival

China xìng cún
Survival

幸存 is the most common way to express "survival" in Chinese. This can also refer to a survivor of a disaster.

However, this is not a common title for a wall scroll. But if you like the idea of survival, this is how to write it.

Survivor

China xìng cún zhě
Survivor

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

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

Eternal Happiness

China xìng fú yǒng héng
Eternal Happiness

幸福永恆 is a short way to say eternal happiness in Chinese.

Breaking down the parts:
幸福 means happiness, happy, blessed, blessedness, joy, and/or well-being.
永恆 means eternal, everlasting, and/or forever.

Another way to write this is 永恆的幸福. It reverses the word order and adds a possessive article. I prefer the shorter version, which is also a bit more natural in Chinese.

Love and Happiness

China xìng fú yǔ ài
Love and Happiness

幸福與愛 is "happiness and love" in Chinese.

There is a suggestion of "good fortune" in the version of happiness used here.

Pursuit of Happiness

China zhuī xún xìng fú
Pursuit of Happiness

追尋幸福 is the best way to translate the English phrase "pursuit of happiness" into Chinese.

The first two characters mean "to pursue," "to track down," or "to search for."

The last two mean happiness, happy, or blessed.

School of Happiness

China xìng fú xué xiào
School of Happiness

幸福學校 means "School of Happiness" or "Happiness School" in Chinese.

幸福 means happiness, happy, blessed, blessedness, joy, and/or well-being.

學校 means school or college.

Be Happy

Japan Shiawa se de a ru
Be Happy

幸せである is a way to express the idea, "be happy" in Japanese.

Japanese grammar is far different than English, so the word order is kind of the opposite of English. If you translated directly, you'd have something like, "Happiness hence forth," or "Happiness hereafter." Basically, the idea is to be happy from this moment on.


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

Eternal Happiness

Japan ei en no kou fuku
Eternal Happiness

永遠の幸福 means "eternal happiness" in Japanese.

永遠 means eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

の is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "happiness, of the eternal kind."

幸福 means happiness, though this word can also be translated as truly blessed, joy, happy, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

School of Happiness

Japan koufuku no gakkou
School of Happiness

幸福の学校 means "School of Happiness" in Japanese.

幸福の學校 is not a common phrase in Japanese, but it will be understood.

Serendipity / Happy Coincidence

Japan shiawa se na guu zen
Serendipity / Happy Coincidence

幸せな偶然 is one of many ways to express serendipity in Japanese.

The first two characters mean happiness, good fortune, luck, or blessing.

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.


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

Serendipity / Lucky Coincidence

Japan kou un na guu zen
Serendipity / Lucky Coincidence

幸運な偶然 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.

Peace, Love, Happiness

China hé píng bó ài xìng fú
Peace, Love, Happiness

This is a word-list that means, "peace, love, happiness," in Chinese.


Word lists like this are not commonly-seen in China. Phrases with subject, verb, and object, or just single words are more natural for calligraphy artwork.

Pursuit of Happiness

Japan koufuku o motome te
Pursuit of Happiness

幸福を求めて is "Pursuit of Happiness" or "In Search of Happiness" in Japanese..

Here's how the characters break down:
幸福 (koufuku) happiness; blessedness; joy; well-being.
を (o) particle
求め (motome) to want; to seek; to pursue; to request
て (te) particle


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

Seven Rules of Happiness

Japan kou fuku no nana ka jou
Seven Rules of Happiness

This is the title for the 7 rules of happiness in Japanese. The rules themselves take up a lot of space:

1. 成功や栄誉や勝ち負けを目的に、ことを行ってはいけない。
2. しないではいられないことをし続けなさい。
3. 他人との比較ではない、あくまで自分の楽しさを追及すべし。
4. 好きの力を信じる。
5. 才能と収入は別、努力は人を裏切ると心得よ。
6. 怠け者になりなさい。
7. 目に見えない世界を信じる。

...so this title is probably all you need.


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

Peace, Love, Happiness

Japan heiwa ai koufuku
Peace, Love, Happiness

This means "peace, love, happiness" in Japanese.


This is a word list, which is not the most natural kind of composition in Japanese (usually there is a subject, object, and verb - or a single word).

Golden Anniversary / 50th Wedding Anniversary

China xìng fú jīn hūn
Japan kou fuku kin kon
Golden Anniversary / 50th Wedding Anniversary

This means "Happy Golden Anniversary" and is a great gift for a couple who is celebrating 50 years together.

The first two characters mean happy, blessed, or happiness.

The last two characters mean, "couple's golden anniversary." It literally means "golden wedding" or "golden marriage" but this is only used for the 50-year-mark of a marriage (the same way we use gold to represent 50 years in the west).

This is a nice title to use with an inscription. You could request something like, "Happy 50th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Smith," to be written down the side of this title, in smaller Chinese characters.


Please note: This can be pronounced and understood in Japanese but not as commonly used in Japan. Japanese people who read this will understand it but might tend to feel it's of Chinese origin.

A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

China xìng fú chéng gōng de yì shēng
A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

This means, "A life of happiness and prosperity" or "A life of happiness and success." It's a great and very positive and inspirational wall scroll selection.


See Also:  Prosperity

A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

Japan kou fuku to ha nei no jin sei
A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

This Japanese proverb means, "A life of happiness and prosperity" or "A life of happiness and success."


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


See Also:  Prosperity

Fortune favors the brave

Japan yuusha ha kouun ni megumareru
Fortune favors the brave

This Japanese proverb suggests that in history, the brave or courageous tend to be the ones who win.


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

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 by 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 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.
