The right one pictures a person spreading out his arms and something curved.

The whole symbol represents “to overstate”.

Similar words

The HOKORI is the most common translation for pride but there are some other words with the same meaning in Japanese. Let me introduce two words!


jisonshin written in

JI = I, myself

SON = respect

SHIN = heart, mind

As you can guess from the kanji letters, Jisonshin means “self-esteem”. It’s almost the same word as pride.


KYOU = a handle of a pike

JI = have

This is a bit classical way of saying pride. In ancient times, a soldier was proud of himself when he gripped a weapon. That made the word KYOUJI mean pride.
