Write beautiful characters

Learn the beautiful art of traditional Japanese Calligraphy! Japanese calligraphy (書道, shodō) also called shūji (習字) is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language. The art of brought to Japan by a Chinese calligrapher from the 4th century, but after the invention of Hiragana and Katakana, the Japanese unique syllabaries, the distinctive Japanese writing system developed and calligraphers produced styles intrinsic to Japan. The term shodō (書道, “way of writing”) is of Chinese origin as it is widely used to describe the art of Chinese calligraphy during the medieval Tang dynasty.

You will learn how to paint pictographic characters with an ink-drenched brush and a focused mind. Not only does this improve your kanji, you’ll also create a masterpiece to hang on your wall.
