Does anyone have a pic of his signature or his name in japanese? I looked around the net and found quite a few photos of him but didnt find anything with his sig or name.

You can find o-sensei's signature's in many of John Stevense's books.
He used to sign his calligraphies with a pen-name :"Tsunemori".
Please see attached file.
The signature is at the bottom of each.

He used to sign a lot of ways, even just signing "Morihei" on occasion (if I recall correctly).
Ze'ev gave you the best pointer, one of John Steven's books "The Essence of Aikido" I think, has a whole section showing O Sensei's calligraphy over the years, clearly showing his signature and commenting on the different signings.
love, light, joy and laughter
