What is a hanko?

  • The hanko is a personal stamp that is equivalent to a signature in other countries, and is an essential part of several transactions.

Small-sized and circular or square-shaped, the stamp is wet by an ink pad called ‘shuniku’, and the mark that it leaves on a document is called ‘inkan’.
