Authentic Kanji T-shirts Designed by A Japanese Girl

Have you ever had doubts about what was supposed to be written in Japanese on something might be wrong? In my life I have seen many things for sale written wrong. I have even come across tattoos that were written incorrectly. With KansaiChick on your side never worry again!

Every (Kanji) item found in my Kansaichick shop has been written by Hand and Brush by me: An Osaka Girl born and raised in Japan. Be confident in your clothing. Never wonder if your t-shirt is saying fish (in kanji) when it’s supposed to say cool (in kanji). No matter if it’s on a t-shirt, mug, hat or bag you can be sure it looks amazing and means what it’s supposed to.

I always have a hard time finding clothing that is written well in kanji, but is functional and fun. Even some of the best calligraphy artists from my country can take the writing and push it to the point that it becomes unreadable or too artistic.

If you have a request for a shirt that says something in Japanese not found in my shop please let me know, and I’ll do my best to put ink to paper and get it up on the shop list. Either way I will keep working and the item selection will continue to grow.

About My Site:

KansaiChick (kansaichick.com) was founded in 2016 by, Tomo Kubo with the goal of sharing Japanese culture, entertaining, and providing real accurate information about Japan. With such a large scale project and such a wide range of information to cover, I had to narrow my vision and goals. Keeping that in mind I looked for something that was commonly done wrong when it came to my culture to focus on, or was typically low in quality when found in a store or online. This has led me to Kansaichick’s current form: “Making Authentic Japanese Kanji T-shirts”

My Moto:

Bringing Japanese culture around the world, one T-shirt at a time! (Including but not limited to: Japanese T’s (tshirts ,t-shirts), tanks (tank tops), sweaters, smart phone cases, tablet case covers, bags, and more.

What is Kanji?

The Japanese language consists of three forms of writing: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. The writing system of Kanji was adopted from the Chinese writing system. Hiragana and Katakana, on the other hand, are purely Japanese and used in no other language. It is important to note: learning how to read and write in Japanese does not mean you can read and write in Chinese or any other Asian language. The writing symbols, meaning, and pronunciation can change and vary depending on each language.
