Your Hanko is You.
In Japan, personal seals called Hanko (or Inkan) are used for identification, and are said to embody a piece of your soul. Your hanko expresses your authority in a variety of situations, similar to your signature in western cultures, and is an essential tool for your life in Japan.
A Hanko for Every Occasion
There are many different situations that call for hanko, from officework and receiving deliveries to opening and managing accounts, to signing official documents and sealing contracts.
