I will demonstrate how to draw the character chosen, any requests are welcome, and help each participate to choose and write kanji. You are also able to experience and learn chinese calligraphy too, Calligraphy originated in China and Chinese characters came to Japan around the first century A.D. Later, the Japanese made original characters—hiragana and katakana—by simplifying or extracting Chinese character. The event will take about 2 hours or so in our house.
