Smooth Sailing


12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


Smooth Sailing in Japanese is 順風満帆 which is read junpuumanpan

The four-character idiom junpuumanpan meaning “Smooth Sailing” is composed of the word 順風 (read junpuu) meaning “favorable wind” and the kanji (read man) meaning “full” and (read pan) meaning “sail”. The meaning then is “everything going smoothly” or even “happily ever after”.
