Amaterasu Oomikami

 amaterasu oomikami
Amaterasu Oomikami Scroll

天照大神 is the Japanese Shinto deity often referred to as the Sun Goddess.

The full name is often romanized as Amaterasu Oomikami/Omikami.
Sometimes also written as 天照大御神 (just the addition of 御 near the end) or 天照皇大神 (with 皇 added in the middle).

Safety and Well-Being of the Family

Kanai Anzen

 ka nai an zen
Safety and Well-Being of the Family Scroll

家內安全 is the Japanese way of saying “Family First.”

It's a Japanese proverb about the safety and well-being of your family and/or peace and prosperity in the household.

Some Japanese will hang an amulet in their home with these Kanji. The purpose is to keep your family safe from harm.

According to Shinto followers, hanging this in your home is seen as an invocation to God to always keep family members free from harm.

We were looking for a way to say “family first” in Japanese when this proverb came up in the conversation and research. While it doesn't say “family first,” it shows that the safety and well-being of your family is your first or most important priority. So, this proverb is the most natural way to express the idea that you put your family first.

 okami / daijin
Okami / God Scroll

大神 is Okami, an honorific title for God (used in Shinto and other religions).

If you directly translate this, you get something like “Big Spirit” or “Great Spirit.”


There are other titles that romanize as "Okami" in Japanese, so make sure this is the right meaning for you. Another common okami means wolf but is a completely different Kanji and meaning.

 shén dào
 shin tou / shin dou
Shinto Scroll

神道 is how to write Shinto, a Japanese national religion.

The meaning is “Way of the Gods.”

This term also has meaning for Chinese Buddhists, where it means the spirit world of devas, asuras, and pretas. It can also be understood as doctrines concerning the soul.

 tiān gǒu
 ten gu
Tengu Scroll

天狗 is the Japanese title for Tengu, which roughly translates as “heavenly dog.”

Tengu is a type of legendary creature found in Japanese folk religion and is also considered a type of Shinto god (kami) or yōkai (supernatural being).

The origin is Chinese, though this term is seldom used in Chinese anymore. It was a dog-like Chinese demon (Tiangou)

Although the title contains the word “dog,” the tengu are often depicted with human and bird-like characteristics. Sometimes they have large noses or beaks like birds.

Katori Shinto-ryu

 ka tori shin tou ryuu
Katori Shinto-ryu Scroll

香取神道流 is the Japanese Kanji for the Katori Shintō-ryū martial arts.

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu

 ten shin shou den ka tori shin tou ryuu
Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu Scroll

天真正伝香取神道流 is Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū, a very old form of Japanese martial arts.

Shinto Muso-Ryu

 shin tou mu sou ryuu
Shinto Muso-Ryu Scroll

神道夢想流 is Shintō Musō-ryū, or Shindō Musō-ryū.

This is usually used in the context of jōdō, a traditional school of the Japanese martial art of jōjutsu (the art of wielding the short staff).

 shin tai
Shintai Scroll

In the context of the Japanese Shinto religion, shintai/shin-tai or 神体 is an object of worship believed to contain the spirit of a deity, typically housed in a shrine.


This may not the the Shintai that you are looking for. This is NOT the Shintai massage technique.

身体 (body/health) and 心体 (heart/mind body) also romanize as Shintai. But I don't know what Saul Goodman is referring to as "light body" though the second character should be 体 which means body.

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 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.
