Japanese Hanko's

Saturday, February 21, 2009 / Posted by Zackary /

In the West important documents are signed by hand. This is true sometimes in Japan but not always. In Japan people often pull out a case with a small stamp called a hanko that is used in place of a signature. For my time sheet at work there are two columns. I use my hanko for one and the principal uses his for the other one.

I learned recently that if you hold the hanko with the indentation facing up then the stamp will be in the right direction.
