Henohenomoheji


The Japanese language word "henohenomoheji" (へのへのもへじ) breaks down into the seven hiragana characters: "He, no, he, no, mo, he, ji", which are used by school children to draw a face in hiragana letters. The first two "he" are the eyebrows[?], the "no" are the eyes, the "mo" is a nose, and the last "he" is the mouth. The outline of the face is made by the character "ji". Children use "henohenomoheji" as the faces of kakashi (scarecrows).
