I asked a native speaker and she doesn’t recognize it as well.

First she thought it may be some older version of あさひ, but a quick search in this context didn’t bring any results. Her guess: Some kind of connection to the places name.

Thanks. If it stumps a native speaker, I don’t feel so bad for not knowing.
I’m still curious about, “How would I find out?”

Perhaps it’s a stylizied rendition of 辻?

I think it’s a stylized 19.

I went the route of searching the other visible text and context and from this wikipedia page
got to this page: http://kakegawa.info/dokoyatai/jyukusyo/ which has a picture of what looks like the same float to me, with a clearer shot of the center, and the title 十九首.

With that and not finding it other places… I think it’s just a fancy squishing of the numbers together.

So I mean… the answer to the question you asked literally in the title of the thread may be pretty obvious in retrospect! :smile:

Edited conclusion:
The native speaker was right too. In Kakegawa there is an area called 十九首 - Jukushu. These people are representing it in the festival, and so the unusual “kanji” is an emblem of sorts for the area.


十九首區 / 十九首区 / “Jukushu district”
