subject: Japanese/Chinese characters
I recently bought a poster with Chinese/Japanese characters on it, and I wanted to be sure the characters actually said what the poster told me they meant. Can you verify that they do mean what they said they mean? I've enclosed a picture. Thanks!
I have seen similar posters before where 鈅 is used incorrect to represent "harmony". It means "key".
The character 匙 does not mean "prosper", rather "spoon".
