I'm a native Japanese who has a strong passion for Japanese calligraphy for 12years since I was little. In the world of Shodo, every single character has its own meaning and how you write the character expresses your feeling or your thought in what you write. Why don't you make your own calligraphy work by spending a relaxing and peaceful time in a traditional Japanese room?
