How to improve your hiragana handwriting
Use elegant bent lines
One of the biggest features of hiragana letters is they consist of BENT LINES. That means if you can write bent lines well, you can make beautiful shapes.
Watch carefully which line is bent and which is straight!
Pay attention to unseen connections
Hiragana letters were originally written in one stroke. Therefore, the end of the stroke and the start of the next stroke are often connected.
Pay attention to these UNSEEN CONNECTIONS. That will make your handwriting seem more natural and beautiful.
To find the unseen connections, you must follow the correct stroke orders! If your stroke order is wrong, you can’t connect proper lines.
Imagine the whole shape
You can keep a better balance when you imagine the whole form for each letter.
The whole form?
Yes. A circle, a rectangle, or a triangle? Try to give an outline shape to each letter!
Here are some examples. These outlines help you organize the whole shapes of the letters.
