In Japan, instead of signing things we stamp our Hanko ( Name stamp ). Hanko is also called “Inkan”. We use them when we want to open a bank account, buy a house, rent something, or sign an important contract. It’s considered a form of ID in Japan.

Hanko is a part of Japanese society and it’s a very important part.

If you should ever come to Japan, you’ll need one for your own bank account or to rent a home, they’re very important here.

Senjafuda

Senjafuda are slips or cards with the bearer’s name printed on them.
They were originally votive placards made of wood,
but since the Edo period they have been made of paper
like this Washi and people used to post them
inside temples and shrines, as a memory of their visit.
In Kyoto,
Maiko and Geisha began to use colorful and patterned senjafuda
as their buisness card,
that were called Hanameishi ( literally “flower buisness card ).
