Meaning & History

This is the name of a former town located in Japan's Mie Prefecture which merged and expanded, along with a few other towns and municipalities, into the city of Tsu.

The kanji used are 香 (kyou, kou, ka, kao.ri, kao.ru) meaning "incense, perfume, smell," 良 (ryou, i.i, yo.i, ra) meaning "good, pleasing, skilled" and 洲 (shuu, su, shima) meaning "continent, country, island, sandbar."

Karasu is also used as a surname, though 香良洲 is not one of them.
