This enamel pin says itterashai in Japanese which translates as 'go and come back' in English.  Which we take to mean 'safe travels'.  Featuring a beautiful crysanthemum that symbolises (in this instance) love, joy and longevity.  It's quite a masculine flower so I designed it to be unisex - a pin to put on the back of a rucksack (or hide in the luggage) when they're off adventuring without you... a much used expression in Japan - it's their version of 'see ya later' which I like to take as a promise... I can be quite intense! 

Designed for my fluent Japanese speaking child on their journeying to live in Japan for a year. Could just as easily be a travel totem for a teen on their DofE or residential week... a non-religious version of a St. Christopher in essence!

Why we love it

  • Hard Enamel Pin
  • Size: 2.5cm diameter
  • Unique design
  • Inspiring message

A little pick me up gift, a birthday present, or just to treat someone, maybe yourself to a cool new pin badge that is pretty damn unique and will definitely add something different to your collection.

These hard enamel pins come with a backing card that provides the Japanese, the English translation and the theme that we have assigned to each pin.

Once they belong to you and you're wearing them they mean whatever they mean to you and that's really kinda the point.

Whether you're into Japanese culture, love Buddist Zen proverbs or are just mad about pin badges.
