Calligraphy "kakizome"

2nd January  rain  Sometimes mixture of snow and rain


     
Calligraphy is one of Japanese culture.
The writing for the first time in the New Year is called "kakizome". (traditionally on January 2)
Most of the elementary schools and junior high schools do kakizome as homeworks on winter vacation.
We write auspicious words with a brush.
