    Speaking of labels...

    Hi Folks,

    My coworker who owns an Ego (boy could I take this line places) really liked the shopping bag that my new TB Zephyr came in (Yes, Sunga, the bag for your bag tradition lives on). He was especially fond of the TB sticker on the bag, but was wondering about the Japanese script on it. Are these characters, per chance, a translation of the care tag instructions that have already been translated to French?

    Portable culture.

      Just has it right, the characters are for "portable culture" (at least in Chinese). For anyone wondering about the sticker, there's a attached image of the sticker in this post. (The "Thank you for a great bag" text was added onto the scanned label.)

        Thanks for the translation. I assumed that the characters were Japanese because of the mountain in the background (that I assumed was Mt. Fuji). But are you sure they don't say something about our leader?

          Looks like Fuji to me! It means the same thing in Japanese. The characters are referred to as "Chinese characters" in Japanese too, but they work for both languages. Maybe for Korean too, though not familiar with that... more a question for Koreans of the old school, maybe.

          Our leader? He could be portable culture too, if you can get past the security.

          I mean at the TB plant, of course. =P
