ICHI NAN SHU
A background on the Japanese calligraphic mark found on the sushi menu...it was written by a gentlemen named Gengo, who is the ranking priest of the Soto School in North America -- one of 3 different schools of Zen Buddhism in Japan: Rinzai, Soto & Obaku. As the sokan (or "archbishop") of Soto Zen in North America, Gengo's writing is held in high regard. It reads, from left to right: ichi-nan-shu: Ichi (One) Nan (South) Shu (Flew). Shu is a poetic word for flew, and all the strokes in the shu character are drawn to represent feathers.
