Usher everlasting luck into your space with uplifting Japanese palindrome phrases that read the same forward and back.
What’s Palindrome (KAIBUN)?
Palindrome is a phrase that reads the same forward and back. Since the words go around, palindrome is a symbol of everlasting luck.
How to Use the Palindrome Calligraphy
Use it to decorate the entrance of your home or office. To uplift your fortune even more, place it in the ‘water section’ of your house such as the kitchen or bathroom. According to Fengshui, these areas where water circulates help to “wash away” bad spirits. The power of palindromes will wash away the impurities of your home or office. A Framed Palindrome Calligraphy also makes for the perfect gift.
まだ恋し仲は Our sweet relationship
遠のきて has gone away
消えた言葉と答え Words have vanished
汽笛の音は The stream whistle
哀しいこだま echoes sadly
MA DA KO I SHI NA KA WA
TO O NO KI TE
KI E TA KO TO BA TO KO TA E
KI TE KI NO O TO WA
KA NA SHI I KO DA MA
Two hearts who used to be so much in love are separated. Words that they used to share have vanished. The steam whistle echoes over and over again.
This is a painful farewell song, and at the same time, the sound of the words weaves a refrain beautifully. Neatly aligned characters look like they are a part of the drawing. This work touches everyone’s heart and we never tire of looking at it.
