Handwritten notice in Japanese. Note the komejirushi at the bottom of each page, preceding the footnotes.

The komejirushi (※; Japanese: こめじるし or 米印; Korean: 참고표) is a punctuation mark used in Japanese and Korean writing. The name “komejirushi” literally means "rice symbol", indicating the similarity to the kanji for rice; 米. It is used to call attention to an important sentence or thought, like a prologue or footnote. In contrast to the European asterisk, it is not used for connecting a specific place in the text directly to the footnote, but rather for notes directly before or after the passage. In Unicode
