Summer Kanji – Natsu

June 17, 2008

Summer Kanji – Natsu

This years summer solstice will be on June 20th in the Northern Hemisphere.  When I asked “What do YOU want to know about Tokyo?”, Chandra from The Boston Traveler asked me to share some “incredibly beautiful” Kanji, the characters used in the Japanese Language.  Your wish is my command, Chandra! 

In honor of the summer solstice here the Kanji for summer or natsu:.   

The three hallmarks of summer in Japan are the yukata (summer kimono), furin (wind chimes), and hanabi (fireworks). 

Check out some more beautiful interpretations of the natsu kanji and others at Kanju-4u.
