Yes I am. Well I've been practising Shodo since I was a kid, in Japan. I've never stopped writing, but I must say lately I'm writing even more. Thank you so much for the nice comment!! Yeah it's similar to "mizu" and "koori": [link] [link]
Shodo is a great and cool art. Congratulations for that.
You are japanese, cool, but you are living in Italy now, right? I was in Japan during a month in 2007, a pleasure trip. It was something that I wanted to do for many years and I could made it. I live in Argentina, by the way. I visited Tokyo, Nikko, Takayama, Kyoto, Hakkone and Hiroshima.
That's right, I live in Italy, well I've been living in Italy for a long time now...Great that you made a trip to Japan!! And to so many beautiful places! I've actually never been to Hiroshima! My hometown is near Takayama, it's called Toyama. I've never been to Argentina...oh there are so many places I'd love to go... Thank you for everything, I really appreciate your support!!!
Thank you so much!! Well I paint them with my calligraphy brush, then take a picture of them and put them in my pc and sometimes I add a frame (usually a picture of a piece of Japanese cloth I have a home). Thank you for the nice comment!
