Hanko (seal) is commonly used in Japanese culture and especially in business environments.
Rather than having to sign upon receiving a postal item or crafting a job resume, a Hanko becomes the official approval to making that important document official and true.
Hanko for foreigners
Foreigners who come to Japan to live usually would want to obtain a Hanko at some point not only as a souvenir but to use as a tool to use on signing important documents at the bank or work related documents.
As most regular hanko shops don’t have the names of foreigners, it is necessary to visit a shop that can make Hanko for foreigners in addition to creating a Japanese Hanko and other language Hanko.
A Hanko is a perfect souvenir showcasing Japanese culture so please get your very own made if you can!
