    Well, I thought it was Japanese because of the 正福原 [Sei Fukuhara]. But after looking long and hard ... I keep getting CHINESE results for "Natural Fortune Food Product Co., Ltd"! After parsing the Chinese translation, I *think* that 正福原 means "Fortune" -- literally "Original/Fundamental True Luck"

    【げん】 (pref) original; primitive; primary; fundamental; rawl].

    I need some Natural Fortune !!! It would also help if we had a native-Chinese speaker on the forum!

    By the way, these types of compasses are made in Japan as well:

    -- Glossy compass housing made of brass with lid and the dial in elegant tones of black and gold.
    -- For reading your fortune on the basis of directional relationships on occasions of building a new house, displacement of furniture and travels.
    -- A stopper to fix the magnetic needle is attached.
    -- The luminous magnetic needle convenient to view in dark.

    Product No.42022-3
    Dry Type
    Size : 45mm

    Although it has the function of compass, this thing is used by the Chinese fortune teller to orientate the furnitures in your new house..etc
    All those Chinese wordings basically mean particular time, year..etc
