Someone I know has a shirt with Japanese on it can someone tell me what it says? They asked me and I don't know. :happy:

Well, for a start, the left Kanji has the left radical "iu", used in other kanji like "-go" (language), "hana-su" (to speak), "yo-mu" (to read), and "imi" (meaning/definition), so I'd guess the meaning of that one is similar. As for the rightmost one, assuming it's just the tree-ish thing and the box, I learned the other day that that one is pronounced "wa" and is used for Japanese things or as the modification "style" (as in "that is an American-style shirt you're wearing"). I can't be of much more help than that, but it's a start.

looks like the word chouwa (調和) to me. it means harmony or balance
