Japanese Proverbs

Japanese Proverbs (kotowaza) and Japanese Sayings beautifully hand-brushed by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase.

Each of our Japanese Calligraphy Designs is carefully researched and comes with independent references. This way you can be absolutely sure our translations are correct. We want you to be as happy with the meaning as you are with Master Takase's beautiful art!

Along with the immediately downloadable digital designs, we also offer each design as original art on handmade Japanese Paper and, when appropriate, as beautiful Japanese scrolls. Each original work is personally brushed and signed by Master Takase when your order is received.
