    Dear valued Members, due to the conversion to a new forum software a lot of threads in the 日本語 section display garbled Japanese characters. We are aware of the situation and work hard on resolving this issue. As all the corrections need to be done manually, this will take some time. We thank you for your patience and understanding!

    My son inherited this sword from his father in law and there is writing on the wooden sheath I was hoping someone can translate. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures. Thank you in advance.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll try to darken the writing up a bit.

    長谷川ーHasegawa
    貫一-Kanichi

    This is probably somebody's name.

    PIC 3

    奥澤町三‐三二 ‐ Okusawa Machi 3-32

    This is an address, probably the owners or stores or whoever's it was.

    The picture is upside-down.
    長谷川貫一 Hasegawa Kan'ichi (a person's name)
     奥沢町 Okusawa machi (a place name. There is an Okusawa district in Tokyo's Setagaya ward for instance. May be any other Okusawa though)
     三・三二 3/32 (some number, perhaps an address in Okusawa)
