Konichiwa! I'm new here and I was wondering, how popular is the Taoist practice of Feng Shui in Japan? Also, are the symbols for K'an, Li, Chen, Ken, Kun, Tui, Kun, and Ch'ien written the same as in Chinese? And how are they pronounced in Japanese? Domo Arigatou! 🙂

Konnichiwa Ranma-san!
Welcome and Hajimemashite. Yoroshikune!🙂

Of course Feng Shui is popular in Japan too. Most of all Japanese know it. It is the same Kanji as Chinese but pronunciation is different. And Feng Shui is Fuu Sui in Japanese pronunciation.;)

This is not a standard pronounciation. It's Cantonese, not mandarin.
