What is a kanji letter for SHINE?

kagayaki written in japanese kanji symbol and hiragana, meaning shine in english

The correct writing needs KI in hiragana. But if you want to use the symbol for an artistic purpose like tattoo or design, putting the kanji alone seems cooler!


KAGAYA-KI (noun), KAGAYA-KU (verb), TERU, KI


  • shine, shining
  • active, bright
  • outstanding, excellent


The symbol gives positive and bright impressions.

The left part of the character stands for “light” and the right one does “army”.

The army does not mean directly “army” but implies “to act in a wide range”. So the whole symbol represents “light shine over wide range”.
