You have it upside down. It's Japanese.

It says "Kaguya hime" . Kaguyahime, or Princess Kaguya, is the protagonist of a 10th-century Japanese folk tale that has inspired countless films, books, plays, cartoons, mangas and video games.

Thanks! I figured I would probably have it upside down! So what do you think it is used for or where would someone get it?

Possibly from a story book. Gold coins are part of the story.

An old man finds a tiny baby girl in the bamboo grove. He takes her home because he and his wife have no children of their own. They name her Kaguyahime. Afterwards, whenever the woodsman went back to work in the grove, gold coins would come pouring out from the bamboo he cut. As a result, the old couple became wealthy. (Reader's Digest version)

The story is along the same line as Momotarosan. Except with a girl instead of a boy. And she doesn't have to fight the ogres to get the gold.
