【Japanese culture experience in Onna-son, on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays】~Japanese Caligraphy~

In Shodo (calligraphy), there are many types of styles such as Kaisho (square), Gyosho (semi cursive), or Sosho (cursive) which are used for writing Kanji.
In Japan, the Kanji characters, originally from China, were spread in the Yayoi period. “Shodo” was spread as Buddhism was brought to Japan and spread by Shotoku-taishi and Shomu emperor through sutra copying.
There are three types of Japanese characters: Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana. In Sasagirian, we will teach you Japanese characters step by step so that anyone can experience the world of Shodo.
Shodo is written with the brush and the ink and its world is unlimited. You will have the time to meditate and face the paper. In Shodo it has been said that “Your incorrect posture leads to incorrect handwriting”, which means that your life itself, and your personality will be reflected in your handwriting. We’ll be delighted if you could feel the importance of putting your heart in when writing a character and seeing how Shodo is profound all while feeling the possibilities of brush written characters. Through experiencing Shodo, we hope that the Japanese written characters will be spread throughout the world and people could feel the warmth of brush written Japanese characters.
