Calligraphy - The Real Thing!

Today, Mr. Hashiguchi visited to show us how to do calligraphy. This time we were learning from someone who really knew what they were doing. We used rice paper and ink (yes, there was a bit of an accident on the floor with that), so it was far more authentic. He also wrote each student's name on a piece of paper, and they wrote them on their best example of "tomo" or friend. Then we made a small samurai helmet from origami paper and mounted our work.

Hey! That's the character I learned to write in my calligraphy class in Japan ... I think your students did a better job than I did, though!

By the way, did you notice that it's the first character in my last name? Pretty cool, huh? :)
