I think it is a cow pat
apperently unicode because it works on my limited Android browser
in fact I got it from an Android friendly character map app.
not on the Wikipedia unicode list and Google search gets no results
but maybe now it will since I posted it on the forum.
could prove handy for re- finding stuff!

I’ve seen that symbol before in anime. It’s a symbol for a hot springs, or onsen in Japanese.

The symbol means hot spring (= onsen)  in Japan.  It also means public bathhouse. But I expect natural hot spring rather than the bath with artificially boiled water. smile

I was curious, so despite the answer coming from a couple of nice people above, I went digging too.  Unfortunately that page and Google seem to be unable to recognize the character itself in a search string.  Would be nice if you could just copy & paste for a search.  Windows Character Map also got me nowhere.  Searching on Google for “hot springs,” however, does pull up plenty of pics.

unicodinator.com confirms that Unicode character 2668, ♨, is indeed called Hot Springs.  Gotta scroll way down a third of the VERY long page to the Miscellaneous Symbols section…or as I just found out, type 2668 (once you know it) into the search box, but it’s there.  The others that came up above are likely in the same area.

Unicode is massive.  The list of characters supported in the system goes up to hexidecimal FFFFFF, or 16777215 in decimal.  16.7 million characters…kinda scary.  I remember the Windows 3.1 / DOS days, when only 256 characters* were available…quite a change.

Still browsing…also found this one:  wikipedia.org/wiki/Miscellaneous_Symbols (Was only a link on their unicode page, so I skimmed past it at first glance when browsing earlier.)

* - That “character” list included machine controls for printers and the like, including enter, delete, carriage return, etc.  This is really taking me back…anybody here ever use a non-electric typewriter?  >D
