How to read
TAMAHII, TAMA, KON
soul, mind, heart
It gives a powerful impression because we often use the word TAMASHII as a meaning of “strong will” or “strong mind” against something.
These are examples!
TOUKON = fighting spirit
SHOUKON = an enthusiastic spirit for one’s business
The left part of the symbol pictures something vague like smoke.
The right part is the kanji symbol for ONI, a Japanese demon.
Why the demon mean “soul”?
In this case, the demon doesn’t represent something evil but someone who’s not in this world. I mean, in that world.
That makes the soul “something hazy that appears after one’s death”.
