Chinese characters were used in China around 3,500 years ago, and now there are about 11 countries still use Chinese characters, which form a "Chinese character culture circle". Even overseas, Chinese characters are very popular, some overseas celebrities even have tattoo of Chinese characters on their body. People also like wear the T-shirt and accessories with Chinese characters which have been presented as omiyage! However, for the Chinese characters with strange meaning, it will make matters worse! For those who are troubled by this, the author has consulted and collected 11 Chinese characters that are also very cool from the Japanese locals!
Ariana Grande, an American world-class pop singer, once had a "七輪" tattooed on her palm, but set off a topic online for a time, because "七輪" in Japanese means "a stove for cooking fish or roasting meat". Furthermore, some people wear T-shirts with some strange and ridiculous Chinese characters on the Internet or on the street, that's not their fault, they are just lack of right knowledge.
The author, as a Japanese, I made an investigation and research thoroughly with the above method! The following are the cool Chinese characters which you can feel free to use them on T-shirts, accessories, nicknames and so on, sorting with the number of strokes.
""魅"" ranks first for its meaning of ""a strange power that can catch people's heart""!
""魅"" represents a fascinating, slightly different beauty, which is usually used in combination with other Chinese characters.
The following is the summary of the cool Chinese characters, sorted from most to less.
"覇" means unifying and governing the country through force and rights, indicating that there is a powerful force sufficient to control the surroundings.
Different from "魅", it means "a kind of pure beauty of shining"
In everyday Japanese, it is often widely used in the form of "綺麗". "麗" has the shape of a real square, regular and restrained, which is really "綺麗"(beautiful and gorgeous)!
The original meaning of "舞" is the relaxed and leisurely dance. Compared to the cheering dance, its meaning has a bias towards the elegant and graceful dance with leisurely tempo. In Japan, the "舞" is mostly used for women names.
The well-known Chinese character "暁" has been shown in a comic book, which refers to the dawn from the night to the early morning. The moment when the darkness is broken and surrounded by light is very cool!
"轟" refers to the stunning sound made by dinosaurs, thunder, cannons, etc., and it's also used to make your name resound through the world! Huh? The character in that comic is just use this Chinese character?

"龍" is the meaning of dragon.In Japan, it mainly refers to the dragon with animal-head and snake-body, which is often used for the name of a boy, so cool at all!
The Chinese character "迅" means "agile and very fast", because there is a "十"(cross) in the word, it is as cool as "who but myself can do it?
"粋" is often seen in the design of current T-shirts. It is a kind of aesthetic consciousness in the Edo period, which refers to a rather elegant and beautiful temperament, attitude and dress, and has a certain temptation.
"梵" is a word for Buddhist, which means the fundamental principle of world creation and the truth of the universe. The truth of the universe! It’s too cool! ! !
Do you know the Chinese characters mentioned above?
Hey? Why there is no "忍(ninja)" and "侍(warrior)"? I want to tell you the reason. In Japan, when it comes to "smart Chinese characters", the metrics are usually non-material minds and conceptual Chinese characters with more strokes. Of course, the meanings of "忍" and "侍" are not surprising or ridiculous, so you can use it with confidence. When you buy a omiyage, please refer to this article!
