Japanese Style Fonts. The first mentions of Japanese writing are confirmed in the 4th century. It arose after the borrowing of Chinese characters, but over time the Japanese simplified them significantly. Moreover, a separate alphabet was created to denote the most common phenomena and household items. As a result, these innovations resulted in a separate language with expressive rounded fonts.

Japanese writing style is like dancing gracefully. In it, every intricate letter is full of deep meaning. The Japanese have long been renowned for their restraint. The secret is that they put all emotions and feelings into the lettering. Japanese style fonts are extremely complex. Sometimes only one hieroglyph contains an entire sentence.
