Akiko in Japanese This is an original hand brushed design of the name Akiko written in hiragana. Hiragana symbols are like letters and have no meaning - they strictly translate the pronunciation of the name. Japanese is written vertically and horizontally and both are correct.
(when Akiko is pronounced ah-kee-ko)
