Asahi is made up of the characters for 朝・あさ・asa and 日・ひ・hi
This means “morning” and “sun”
In English we always say “land of the rising sun” but especially in Japan, “asahi” has the same feeling.
Asahi is used as the name of one of Japan’s biggest newspapers – the Asahi Shimbun.
It’s a good name for a newspaper, right? The morning sun brings a new day and new news.

I bet you know the Japanese beer Asahi.
There is also the Asashi breweries with the iconic silver “superdry” can and label.
