Japanese to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting
Japanese term or phrase:ｷﾏｳﾘｹﾅﾇ
This is a title of a painting done by a school child on an exchange project (looks like imitation Picasso) - I don't know if I got the symbols quite right, is there any chance of a translation?
Hi Wynona. The second line just gives the child's name in kanji. He's romanized his given name as Yuiti but it should be Yuichi. The bottom line gives the school name: Nase elementary school, Yokohama city.
Hi Wynona - which encoding did you use to post your question? The characters appear to be garbled. At the moment, it says 'kimaurikenanu,' which doesn't mean anything in particular....but then, it may have been a very young child just learning to write(?)
Explanation: Whenever you see half-width katakana which appear to be possibly gibberish, it is always a good idea to suspect a character encoding issue, or 文字化け。 Sometimes a 'mojibake' issue will manifest itself in the form of half-width katakana.
