Japanese term or phrase: Shi Kara Oshiro Ni
I had seen this phrase on someones logo in a videogame i was playing online.

English translation:From Master to diciple
Explanation:
Some actual Japanese text would be greatly helpful. I am not entirely sure about this, but the above mentioned meaning: (transmitted) from the "teacher" (master) to his diciple - like in martial arts etc.
seems to be the most likely interpretation.

Sorry I cannot be more specific.

From City to Castle


Explanation:
Without the original Japanese characters, this is difficult. If you are playing a strategy game online however and wanted to send troops from a city or town (shi) to a castle(oshiro), this could be the meaning.

Explanation:
Even though the poster couldn't be bothered to get the spelling right.

There are a number of things wrong with the "from town to castle" translation.

shi=city only works for proper names--Chiba-shi for Chiba City (as opposed to Chiba Prefecture). The usual term in this context is machi.

o-shiro for castle fits in fairy tales, but RPGs for adults most likely drop the honorific prefix.

shiro=castle usually takes the postposition he/e, not ni in this context.
