WARAN MIZUKUKI- KAI ( 和蘭みずくき会 )
What is SHODO（書道）?
SHODO is the name of Japanese calligraphy.
SHO（書）is the writing of beautiful character , and DO（道）is a way. SHODO ( 書道 ) is an art , and also SHODO will be a kind of mentality training.
You learn SHODO by copying a beautiful text of works from good calligraphers, as in other arts. When you learn SHODO with a good concentration and a correct posture, you may find out your deep feeling and your own honest line … if you want.
