Kanji for Honor Meiyo Bushido Code Poster
This poster features the kanji for honor. The two characters are pronounced meiyo. It’s one of the eight virtues of Bushido, the way of the warrior, the code of moral principles that samurai lived by.
We offer this design as well as the other seven principles, each on its own, on postcards, keychains, magnets and mugs as well as posters in our zazzle shop.
Brush artist Hiro created this work at his studio in Kyoto by hand. Then we scanned it for use here. It’s also featured on this short bushido code kanji quiz.
The black kanji characters contrast well with a white base, and the likeness of Hiro’s red name stamp in the lower left corner adds a dash of color that brings this work and these two kanji for honor to life. Its simple flair and the history behind it make this a distinctive piece of wall art that’s just right for spaces with a minimalist decor, be it modern or more folk inspired.
