Kanji 'Bushido' Necklace
Bushido - Bushido is often referred to as 'The Way of the Warrior' or the 'Code of the Samurai'. Bushido consists of three Kanji characters: 'Bu' means Martial Arts, 'Shi' means Warrior and 'Do' means Path or Way.
The foundation of Bushido consists of seven principles by which all Samurai adherred to: Justice (Gi), Bravery (Yuu), Benevolence (Charity and Compassion) (Jin), Politeness (Courtesy) (Rei), Veracity (Truthfulness) (Makoto), Honor (Meyo) and Loyality (Chuugi).
The Samurai were fierce warriors, skilled in the Martial Arts and the use of the bow and blade - to die in battle was considered the highest honor - to bring shame upon the family or the lord served was considered the greatest sin.
Honor the tradition that was the Samurai with our Kanji Bushido necklace.
All of our necklaces are separately crafted and hand painted and with the use of traditional Chinese knots, each necklace is it's own minature piece of art. No two Kanji necklaces are alike - each is as different as the person that wears them.
(We size all of our Kanji necklaces to whatever length you desire. Please let us know what length you would like your necklace at the time of ordering.)

About Kanji Necklaces
The origins of Kanji and Kanji calligraphy date back to the 3rd century when fleeing Buddhist monks from China found sanctuary in Japan. Free from persecution, the monks developed a highly creative form of Kanji art which we see today.
Many eastern traditional spiritual leaders believe that through Kanji the inner Chi is both re-affirmed and strengthened. As in yoga and the martial arts, connecting with the inner self brings focus - focus brings peace of mind, body and spirit.
Each Kanji symbol is representative of a persons inner Chi (spirit).
