Hanko is a personal seal, a deep part of Japanese culture from more than2,000 years.
In Japan, hanko are often used as a tool for personal identification, with one's name engraved in kanji characters.
Each individual kanji has its own meaning, and Japanese names are also often named after kanji related to land or job associated with ancestors.
The Meaning of Hanko for the Japanese
For the Japanese, the hanko, like the fingerprint, is used as the one and only personal identification. They are used to manage money in banks, real estate agencies, and when buying and selling cars.
So a real hanko is made to order, one by one.
