(life)
You realize how hard it is to zero in on one favorite kanji when you try to do so. I pick the kanji for Life because when I think of Japan I can best describe my view of the Japanese people is their Life, their respect for life, and my respect for not only all civilized people, there is a certain intangible uniqueness about Japan that has me enthralled and has held my deep interest for over 10 years. And as much of a stretch as it might seem, Life is what I see in the incredible beauty of Japanese people and society.
