I’d like to know how closely these pictograms mimic the actual characters they represent. Are they still readable in Japanese ? ( Sachiko can you tell me ? ). A great way of helping you recognise and memorize foods if they are. Interested to know if it’s more for art than a practical tool ? The original Tamalog article in Japanese. Have a look and see what you think. It would make a lovely poster either way.
Update: Uriana Let me know that they are in fact Chinese characters.
