Mitsue is a girl’s name of Japanese origin. While it can also be spelled as Mitsuye, its meaning varies according to the kanji characters used. From “bright river” to “bright wisdom,” to “heavenly staff,” to “three,” the interpretations are endless. One of the moniker’s most celebrated bearers is Japanese American poet, Mitsuye Yamada, arguably the first and most vocal Asian American woman to write about the wartime incarceration of Japanese Americans.
