On the second of January,in Japan we write the first calligraphy of the year called’Kakizome’ 書 き 初 め. This is an old tradidion from the Edo period. In Japan we write a kanji or a poem that inspires you something for this year.
I wrote the kanji ‘ Warau’ which means ‘ Smile’. because I think it is important to remember it always. There is a proverb that says ‘the smile is the best medicine’. And I belive this is true.
Then the day of Dondoyakifestival,we burn this calligraphy. What word would you wrtie for you this year?
