Writing your Japanese Surname

Writing your Japanese Surname
Q: My surname is Japanese.
Can you translate it and create Japanese symbols?
James Suzuki

+++ Takanori Tomita's Response +++

Writing a person's name with *Katakana and *Hiragana scripts should all be the same.
It doesn't matter whether you are Westen, Japanese or European.
However, there are many ways to write names with [*KANJI] scripts.
Like my name, there are so many people who have got different kanji scripts even though the name, takanori, is the same as others.

It really depends on who decide your name in Japanese.
Japanese people's surname is usually derived from ancestor,
and already decided when we are born.
On the ohter hand, first name are usually given by their parents, grandparents or sometimes their parents ask fortunetellers.

For western people, it depends on who you ask to design your name.
Of course, there are different ways to translate your name.

1. Phonetic translation, and
2. literal translation.

In our age, it is common to translate western people's name by using phonetic translation.
That's what the majority of western people have thier name in Japan.

So, if your surname is Japanese, I suggest you to askyour Japanese side of parents first, and come back to my service. If you would like to see the example of western person's Japanese name, check this site: [ http://www.dsfy.com/JapaneseNameTranslation.htm]

With the next article, I will talk about how we tranlate Westerner's name into Japanese Symbols.

+++ Terminologies are explained here +++
*Katakana: Katakana symbols are angular in shape.
*Hiragana: Hiragana symbols are more rounded scrips.
You can see these symbols online at:http://www.dsfy.com/katakana.htm
*KANJI: Kanji scrips are the one similar to Chinese scrips, and if you have wathed the LAST SAMURAI movie, you know that.




Today's Japanese food
The Japanese food I am going to tell you today is Unajyu.






Unajyu is a bowl of rice and broiled eel.
Normally, we east this in a lunch time, and you will also have some side dish such as Toufu (Bean curd), seafood soup, and Japanese pickle, as you can see.
