So, in Japan there are things called inkan or hanko that we use to give signatures on a paper. It is a stamp that we have to get specially made. It is needed to open a bank account here and do various things.
I had to pick something up from the post office today and needed my inkan. It basically looks like a small stick, with a round small stamp on the end.
You don't have to carry ink with you, because all places that expect a inkan will have ink ready for you to use.
Anyways, so I went to stamp my inkan and when I dipped it into the ink I noticed something was strange...like a strange feeling
When I put it on the paper and pressed it down to stamp my name I also noticed something strange, as if the paper was bumpy or something preventing me from pushing down straight...
Well I realised why after I picked up my inkan....
It was backwards. I had just stamped the end.
It looked like how it would look if you too a pencil unsharpened or eraser end and dipped it in paint and stamped it on a paper. A big red circle.
