 印鑑について Regarding Inkans

 ■はんこ/印鑑には 銀行印、実印、認印の3種類あります。
  Personal inkans (seal) are used like a signature in Japan. There are three kinds of the personal hankos,
  Registered hankos, Bank hankos and Unregistered (informal) hankos.

  When you open your bank account, you need your hanko which is called “Ginko-in” or signature (only
  for people who have a job). We recommend buying a hanko or having a hanko made.
  Kanji, katakana or Roman alphabet are acceptable. A registered Japanese alias (popular-name) is okay.

 2)実印とは市区町村役場に登録した印鑑で 車の売買などの時に使うもので大切な印鑑です。
 The registered hanko is called ”Jitsu-in”.
 You have to registeret it at the City Office and it is used for serious contractual matters things such as the
 purchase of the car, etc. This is often the largest (about the diameter of your thumb: 12mm to 18mm)
 hanko. It is an important one.

 3)認印は、宅配便の受取りなどいろんな場面で日常使用します。 はんこ屋さんで購入できます。
   The Hanko for casual informal affairs is called “Mitome-in”(Unregistered Inkan)
   Unregistered hankos are often used for things like signing for packages, etc.
