Komejirushi
The komejirushi (※; Japanese: こめじるし or 米印) is a punctuation
mark, that is used in Japanese and in Korean (known as 참고표). The
name 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 the komejirushi is available at code point U+203B
"REFERENCE MARK". The symbol is also used to denote contradictions in
mathematical proofs.
