This is a kakizome I wrote for my overseas acquaintances before 2020. I came across a piece of writing that I forgot to give to you, so I’ll introduce it to you. The meaning and reading characters are written, such as “Dear Ally, dancing kumatamo (writer’s name) book”. He must have loved to dance.

こちらは2020年以前に海外の知人に向けて書いた書き初めです。あげようと思ってわたしそびれた書き物が出てきたのでご紹介します。「アリー様へ ダンス クマタモ(書き手の名)書」というような意味や読み方の文字が書かれています。きっと踊るのが好きな人だったのでしょう。


This is written as “Song Kumatamo for Tommy”. It must be a letter addressed to Tommy who likes singing. The name is Kumatamo in phonetic equivalent. It’s not Kumatashigeru.

こちらは「トミー様へ ソング クマタモ書」と書いてあります。きっと歌が好きなトミーさんに宛てた書でしょう。名前は当て字でクマタモです。くまたしげるではありません。


This is written as “To Sarah Lady Gaga Kumatamo Book”. Must have been a fanatic of Lady Gaga. I don’t know their contact information, and I can’t remember their faces or names anymore, so I introduced them on my blog.

こちらは「サラ様へ レディー・ガガ クマタモ書」と書いてあります。きっとレディー・ガガの熱狂的ファンだったのでしょう。連絡先もわからず顔も名前もうろ覚えでもうあげることが出来ないのでブログでお披露目いたしました。

By the way, calligraphy using ink called shodo and penmanship is learned in elementary school, so most of the people can write! Although they can! Just like painting, there are good and bad skills, and Kumatamo’s calligraphy is really good! ! Self-praise!


Other Japanese New Year events include visiting temples and shrines for the New Year, watching the first sunrise of the year, giving children an allowance called otoshidama, flying a kite, and playing hagoita, a game similar to badminton. Dreams seen on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are called Hatsuyume, and it is said that it is auspicious if one Fuji, two hawks, and three eggplants appear.


↑ Please see this article for 1 Fuji 2 taka 3 eggplants. By the way, in Kumatamo’s first dream of the year, a big comedian named pacific saury Akashiya appears and says, “I’m going to give honey to my ex-girlfriend, so I’ll buy this land and build an apiary.” It’s scary!” I persuaded him at the park and bought him a honey the size of Pooh’s. 1 Akashiya Sanma 2 honey 3 Park. Hmm…it looks like it’s going to be profitable! ! !
