Let us tell you something about Hanko
Hanko is a seal made from boxwood or other material with your name engraved in it.
In Japan, Hanko is stamped in place of a signature.
On occasions such as opening a bank account or getting married, Hanko stamp is required to confirm a person's identity.
Japanese people also use Hankos as a hobby or for fun.
Artists stamp a corner of their work such as pictures or calligraphy with their Hanko in place of a signature, and sometimes ordinary people also stamp the end of letters and books that they own with their Hanko as well.
Japanese adults all have their own Hanko.
Therefore, we could say that Hanko is the one of items that symbolize Japanese culture.
Actually, Hanko is one of the popular souvenirs among foreign tourists.
Anyone could easily find that it's your Hanko
However, a Hanko is generally engraved with Japanese Kanji, Hiragana, or Katakana.
So most foreigners can't find whose Hanko it is when they look at the imprint.
Also, it might be hard to take in traditional Japanese flavor from a Hanko which is enraved with only Engrish alphabet.
DUAL HANKO is engraved with both Japanese kanji and English alphabet, so that it could be easily found whose Hanko it is.
