Shodo, or calligraphy, is the art of writing Chinese characters (known as kanji) as well as the two Japanese syllabaries (known as kana) using brushes, ink, and paper. Shodo was first introduced to Japan from China in the 6th or 7th century. As writing was once the only way to keep records, Shodo was an essential skill. Nowadays people do not use Shodo for practical purposes, but it remains an important part of Japanese culture. People use Shodo on a number of ceremonial occasions, including the writing of New Year's greeting cards. There are a number of places where you can try Japanese calligraphy. It may look complicated, but if you try working with simpler characters, you'll find it's easier than you think.
