Syodo Girls (Japanese Calligraphy Girls)
Japanese Calligraphy Girls
Have you ever heard “Syodo Girls”? These girls are high school students and do calligraphy performance with dancing. The national contest is held once a year in summer in Ehime prefecture. It was started from a Mishima high school’s calligraphy club. They used to do a performance event at a shopping mall but it became popular when it was showed on TV. It became a movie, too. Now, there’re a lot of Syodo Girls and they compete their skills. The contest is judged by a sense of energy, the beauty of their calligraphy and the performance. In this summer, it will be held on July 26th. Why don’t you watch it??
