Hi, it’s Junko from Japan. KANROJI MITSURI is a very sweet name. In this post, I’ll explain what Mitsuri’s full name means in Japanese!

What Does MITSURI Mean?

MITSU = honey
RI = gemstone, precious orb

MITSU stands for “honey.” RI is a Kanji symbol for something round and beautiful such as gemstones. When we see the name MITSURI and its Kanji letters, we find it so lovely and feminine.

What Does KANROJI Mean?

KAN = sweet
RO = dew, drop
JI = temple

KANRO is a legendary sweet liquid in the ancient Chinese tradition. It’s said KANRO will fall from heaven when an excellent king appears. JI is for a Japanese Buddhism temple.

In Japanese history, there is the Kanroji family in the Heian period (794-1192) which was a noble family serving the Emperor. Kibutsuji Muzan also was a member of the aristocratic family in the same Heian period. Also, the founder of the Kanroji family is from the Fujiwara clan, and the Kanji symbol FUJI stands for wisteria. We can find many common points with Demon Slayer.

That’s why some Japanese Demon Slayer fans guessed that Mitsuri is from a wealthy and noble family. But as long as reading the original manga, there’s no description showing her lineage, and her parents look like ordinary people.

KANROJI Buddhism Temples in Japan

There are more than ten Buddhism temples with the KANROJI names in Japan. The most popular one is the Kanroji temple in Wakayama prefecture. After the massive hit of Demon Sleyr, they decorated the temple with Mitsuri colors, and many fans rushed there to see it and get the original charm.
