SHIN = parents, kin, (someone is) close

YUU = friend

The SHIN symbol stands for someone who has a close relationship with you.

When used alone, it means “parents”. When combined with other characters, it emphasizes that something is closer and more familiar.


So the word SHINYUU makes “the closest friend”!


About the SHIN symbol, the whole shape represents a person who is praying in front of a mortuary tablet. The tablet is of its “parent”.

The YUU symbol pictures that two people are holding their right hands.

    Hello! I was trying to find a Japanese writing for “Best Friend til the end” .
    This Japanese friend that I’ve known since age 5 and wanted to make something to have it engraved. Not sure if you are able to use the full sentence or is it that you have pictured “shinn yuu” is the appropriate way to do it? Please asap!
    Thank you!!

      Hello! If you will engrave letters into something, I think the word SHINYUU alone makes sense to show your friendship.
      We can add other words if we try to translate your sentence faithfully, but it may seem a bit odd or childish. If I were you, I just engrave Shinyuu kanji letters. Hope it helps!
