Gaara has a symbol that reads "WMW" on his Sand gourd. What does this symbol mean? Is it kanji or just some random symbol?

    I don't think that says "WMW"... it just looks like some sort of design/pattern (for aesthetic purposes). At any rate, it isn't anything Japanese.

From the Naruto wiki site:

Gaara carries around this giant calabash-shaped gourd covered in designs and filled with his chakra-infused sand which he can freely manipulate.

It's just a design on the gourd and doesn't hold any particular meaning.


there is likely no meaning to the presence of the symbol aside from looks but it is one japanese "letter" from Katakana written system, not Kanji. It is ヨ . which is pronounced yo
