Do you know why Nintendo is named Nintendo?
Nintendo is 任天堂 in kanji.
任 (nin) means “leave” “entrust” “let”
天 (ten) means “sky” “heaven”
堂 (do) means “store” “shop” “company”
A company leaving their business to sky.
This name is from Chinese poem
(jinji o tsukushite tenmei o matsu)
This poem expresses…
If you’ve done everything you can, what you can do is just leave the matter to sky (destiny).
I’ll research other Japanese company names’ history!!
