SUE = the end, the last

TSUMU = pluck

HANA = flower

The kanji symbol meaning “the end” was used because people plucked the flower on the tip of its stem.

The word Suetsumuhana also means the name of the ancient princess in Genji Monogatari, the oldest novel written in Japan. She is described as a princess who is old-fashioned and stubborn. The tip of her nose was red and that’s why Hikaru Genji, the main character of the Genji Monogatari, called her Suetsumuhana.


The kanji character “BENI” gives a feminine and beautiful impression because this letter is also used for meaning a woman.

“HANA” is a symbol that has a cute impression. So the kanji letters of “Benibana” have a girly image.
