What is the difference between Chinese and Japanese calligraphy?

Chinese calligraphy is prettier, and most of the words in Japanese are from Chinese. Chinese people are smart, they created a wonderful language. love Chinese!


Both cultures use the same calligraphy to some extent. The Japanese use a form of calligraphy that's called kanji, or hanja in Korean that uses the same characters as in China...however if you want to get technical they do have their own characters that are more free flowing and articulate brush strokes...whereas Chinese characters have more subtle brush stroke coordination
