This character is a combination of 糸 thread, here meaning “cord,” and 帝 emperor, acting as a phonetic element signaling the on’yomi. 帝 itself developed from a pictogram of three vertical lines tied together (there are different interpretations of what exactly it represents), and carries a meaning of “to bind firmly.” Together with 糸, this gives “to bind firmly with a cord.” It has since come to also mean “tighten/shut,” and is even used in a figurative sense as “conclude/tie up.”
A butsudan (仏壇) family altar in a Japanese home.
I was lucky enough to be let in with a family when living in Takarazuka, Japan. Here they showed me their room that was dedicated to this family altar.
It is common to notify the ancestors here about all matters of life, new family members by birth or marriage, deceased family members or simply just life events are often announced to the ancestors at these altars as if they were still alive.
My own photography, taken in Takarazuka, Japan.
What am I here for? Just to suffer? Every day I wake up in a cold sweat forgetting whether or not my Duolingo streak is still alive.
Who is going to tell Kohh?

🖌 “Keiko” 🎨
An art project for school. It wasn’t my usual style because of an assignment.
I was experimenting with my own anime art style, and I’ve found this is what I tend to draw for originals. It’s somewhat of a NANA and Peach Girl mix, with bigger lips, and more realistic eyes.
Keiko Kitagawa was my model and inspiration!
