"Kanji" is not a symbol, but a meaning in each character. By overlapping the "kanji", the meaning becomes deeper, and sometimes the facial expression changes and it resonates with the heart. In the experience, instead of learning the stroke order and splash order, it is time to enrich your imagination, hone your personality, stimulate your brain and boost your immunity, and create your own "Kanji" art work in the world. "Kanji" is "feeling". Why don't you travel together in the endless and free world of calligraphy art while having fun?
