Japanese? Pendant

Postby silverly » Sat Dec 30, 2017 5:48 pm

Wondering if anyone will shed some light on the origination and possible characters on the front of this two and three eighths inches or six centimeters wide pendant. The only markings are sterling and 950. Image

you are right, definitely Japanese. post war 1950's - 1960's. No idea what the characters mean.

Also the 950 means 950/1000 silver purity, slightly higher than the 925 minimum requirement for sterling silver.

Thank you very much legrandmogol. I have no knowledge of these characters but I've been viewing both Japanese and Chinese examples just to see if anything makes sense.
