Lone or Germany (Sosho)

Japanese Calligraphy by Nao

Lone or Germany (Sosho)

hito-ri, doku

Today’s style is sōsho. Yesterday’s is kaisho.

I forgot to mention that this character also means Germany. So I changed the title of yesterday’s post from “Lone” to “Lone or Germany.” Since some countries’ names can be written in kanji like futsu (France) or bei (U.S.A) and each of them is one character, they are often included in news headlines.
