A special New Year calligraphy for the year

“Kakizome” is known as a calligraphy done in January 2nd. It’s calligraphy, but doing this in that day means a lot.

Normally people write a word of his/her aspiration or preparation of the year. It’s been said that the important thing need to be started soon, even from a day after the New Year day. (But actually some people don’t concern what to write and just write any word as the first calligraphy of the year).


Modern people don’t concern with doing kakizome in January 2nd, though people still write their word of the year in the beginning of the year.
