Koyomi 〜 Designed to experience japanese the japanese aesthetic through the act of writing 〜

KOYOMI(Toshoinban Co., Ltd.) (Kanagawa)

Experience the essence of Japanese calligraphy with ease through this day-to-day flip calendar. Each page, containing the date for each day, showcases a kanji character created by the calligrapher. There is a designated space to practice writing the same character, following the example. As you turn the pages, you encounter various kanji characters so you can confirm their meanings and usage, while also exploring the charm of calligraphy and the beauty of handwritten characters. A few moments spent writing kanji offer a relaxing escape from bustling everyday life. The artist behind the 365 characters, Mohri Suzuki, is a calligrapher who achieved the highest awards at one of the world’s top four calligraphy exhibitions, the Mainichi Shodo (calligraphy) Exhibition, at an exceptionally young age.
In an age where unforeseen circumstances such as the COVID-19 pandemic and conflicts disrupt the world, the act of writing can offer a brief respite, allowing you to step away from smartphones and the internet. It is a chance to focus exclusively on your breath, the sensation of your hands, the shapes of the characters, and the touch of the brush. It is a way to immerse in a moment of concentration. It is hoped that the characters users write in this calendar will transcend language barriers, creating a space where thoughts of peace can flourish. The calendar serves as an excellent choice for souvenirs to share abroad or as presents for friends. Both givers and recipients can experience and appreciate the beauty of Japan through this meaningful gift.
