What Does Fukushima mean in Japanese? link...
Anyone know what Fukushima means in Japanese? I know shima means island but what does fuku mean?

from: [link to www.freedict.com]

these are some of the definitions of Fuku. However it depends on which character is used to represent fuku. I am not able to find any translations online. but the last three are very interesting considering the situation.

Japanese: English
fuku: crawl
fuku: duplicate, copy, assistant, associate
fuku: clothes
fuku: good fortune
fuku: stoop, bend down, crouch, lie down
fuku: to blow (wind etc)
fuku: to wipe, to dry
fuku: to emit, to spout

I don't know what Fuku means in Japanese, but shima means island.

Fukushima becomes Fuk u island.

I find it weird that the city closest to the epicenter of the 9.0 earthquake is called Sendai which they pronounce sin-die.

Cherry Pick?

fuku can have many meanings. it depends on the character used and context.

I was just wondering if there are any Kanji readers that know the meaning of the character used to represent fuku in the name fukushima. I can not find it online.
I am only curious.

According to wikipedia ( [link to en.wikipedia.org] the kanjis for Fukushima are 福島. (Please follow the link if the kanjis are messed up.)
According to google translate, 福 means Blessing, good fortune, and 島 means island.

Let me get this straight. WWII Japan sends weaponized balloons over the ocean to attack North America...

... and they build a high risk reactor where?

As far as I can see, the design planning and placement of this device could be seen as an act of war against the North America.

take nothing for granted...

pennywise

Re: What Does Fukushima mean in Japanese? link...
according to my Kotoba (dictionary), the most used meaning is "To wipe, to dry,"

a "Godan" (transitive) verb

Used in a sentence: the example given is "Wipe the sweat from your brow"

or

"To blow" (wind, etc)(play a wind instrument)etc

-------------------

not that it has any deeper meaning

The reason for your post might be that you are either very upset about what's happening and blaming the messenger of this thread or you're a shill. If the former, hey, okay, you're acting out, if the latter, hey, G.T.F.O.

Just look at the pattern of names:

Conception Chile
Christchurch New Zealand
Sendai Japan
Fukushima

Conception; Christ Church, Sin Die, Fuk u

and 09/11/01 + 03/11/11 = 12/22/12 the day after the Mayan Calendar end date. (Which would be on the same day of 12/21/12 in the western hemisphere)

It almost seems like somebody took a map of the world and picked names and numbers on purpose.
