Sun / Solar

Also means Day, Sunshine, Sunlight, or Japan
hi / nichi
Sun / Solar Vertical Wall Scroll

日 is the word for sun. It also means day, and can refer to the day of the month when expressing the date.
Example: October 1st would be "10 Moons, 1 Sun."

日 is also the first Kanji for the title of Japan (in Chinese, Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja). Thus, this character is used as an adjective for things that are Japanese.
Ever heard of Japan being called, "The land of the rising sun"? Well, that's what the full title of Japan means.

Depending on context, this character can mean Sunshine or Sunlight.


Note: In Japanese, this Kanji has a variety of possible pronunciations. The pronunciation changed depending on context and how this Kanji is combined with other Kanji. When used alone, this is usually "hi" (pronounced like "hee") but sometimes it's "nichi." When combined, it can be "tsu," "ni," "ka," and a few others.

Morning Sun

asahi

Sun

太陽 is a two-character title for the Sun.

This refers specifically to Sol, the star at the center of our Solar system.

In Japanese, this is often romanized as Taiyou or Taiyo, but can also be pronounced as the names Minami, Hiroaki, Hinata, Hikaru, Tsubasa, Tahi, Takayasu, Takaharu, or Soru.

Asahi / Morning Sun

zhāo rì

Asahi / Morning Sun Vertical Wall Scroll

朝日 is a version of the Japanese name Asahi.

This can also be Ahisa, Asuka, Ashita, or Asaka. 朝日 means morning sun and is the name of the famous beer company in Japan.

This would be read as "Zhao Ri" in Mandarin where it means morning sun but is also known to be the Asahi company (maker of beer and other beverages).

Sun Moon Stars

Sun Moon Stars Vertical Wall Scroll

日月星 is the shortest way to write a title (or word list) that means Sun, Moon, Stars.

The Sun, Moon and Stars

rì yuè xīng chén

This title encompasses all of the heavenly bodies or celestial bodies.

Namely, this includes the Sun, Moon and Stars of our universe.

Tomorrow / The Next Sun

míng rì
ashita / meibi
Tomorrow / The Next Sun Vertical Wall Scroll

明日 is a common way to say "tomorrow" in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

This temporal noun literally means "next sun[rise]." In addition to "tomorrow," it can also mean "near future."

In Japanese, this can also be the female given name Meibi.

Assuncao

ā sǔn sà ào
Assuncao Vertical Wall Scroll

阿筍薩奧 is a common Mandarin Chinese transliteration for the female Portuguese/Latin name Assunção or Assuncao.

Heaven

tiān
ten
Heaven Vertical Wall Scroll

天 means "heaven" or "sky" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The context determines if you are talking about heaven or the sky above (often they are the same concept).

When combined with other characters, words like "today" and "tomorrow" are created. While sometimes the character for "sun" is used to mean "day," often "sky" represents "day" in Asian languages.
Example: 今天 (this sky) = "today," 明天 (next sky) = "tomorrow" in modern Chinese and Japanese.

In Chinese culture, regardless of which religion, it's almost always assumed that God (and any other deities) live up above in the sky. The concept of God living in the sky is likely the reason heaven is associated with this character.
The equation goes something like this: God's domain is the sky, thus, the sky is heaven.


Note: As a single character, this is a little ambiguous, so you might want to choose our Kingdom of Heaven selection instead.

Day

hi / nichi
Day Vertical Wall Scroll

日 is how to write "day" in Chinese, Japanese and Korean Hanja.

This can also mean "Sun," the star in the middle of the Solar system in which we live. In Japanese, it can also mean "sunshine" or even "Sunday."

When writing the date in modern Chinese and Japanese, putting a number in front of this character indicates the day of the month. Of course, you need to indicate the month too... The month is expressed with a number followed by the character for the moon. So "three moons ten suns" would be "March 10th" or "3/10."

Note: 日 is also the first character for the proper name of Japan. Remember that Japan is "The land of the rising sun"? Well, the first character for Japan means "sun" the second means "origin" so you get the real meaning now. Sometimes, in China, this sun character can be a short name for Japan or a suffix for something of or from Japan.

埃爾孫 is a common Mandarin Chinese transliteration for the male Spanish/Latin name Elson.

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.
