What is Calligraphy?

Calligraphy is the art which is writing of Chinese character with a brush in India ink. Particular emphasis is placed on the shades of the ink, the movement of the writing brush and the combination of strokes.
At MONJYU-BO, beautiful stationeries such as suzuri or brush are decorated in the study and appreciated with guests.
In order to inherit the culture of appreciating stationery, we reproduce the brush of the Nara Shosoin Treasures and display them at the store.
