Another busy day writing for Moni as deadlines loom. All is good though and we are really enjoying our time in Japan. There is so much to see in this country, lots of history and fascinating places to visit. I do believe that Japan even though small in size has so much to offer that once you get a taste and feel of it and its people you’ll be hooked for more.
Day 35 – April 7th, 2014.
“Our First Time Writing in Japanese Kanji”
Apart from writing for many hours during the day, we did manage to get out for some fresh air. A visit to our local sushi place turns into a Japanese Kanji writing lesson for an hour or so as we practice.
Definitely not the easiest of scripts to learn but certainly one of the most characteristic. We write our names and a few other words, even though we are very stiff with the brush you can make out what it is supposed to read. I find it very much a form of art more than just the written word.
Japan has more than one written text, it has three, Kanji, Katakana and Hiragana, also sometimes they use Romaji which would make it four, but the first three are the most common.
