Loose Leaf Practice Grids


Click the PDF icon to download.

The best way to perfect your Japanese handwriting is by filling out practice grids!  The four sizes I have created are meant to grow with you as you learn to write.  

The largest grid is for those who are just learning to write kana or for practicing new kanji.  The middle two sizes allow for more characters for page and train you to write at a smaller, more natural size.  


The smallest size trains you to write beautifully in Japanese notebooks without having to loose the dotted lines (the "training wheels" of writing as I like to call them)! 




Note Training

Genkouyoushi  (Manuscript Paper)





Click the PDF icon to download.

In Japan, assignments that are meant to be handwritten by students are almost always required to be completed on this paper.  Entrance exams are also done on this paper.

This resource is perfect for Japanese language teachers.  It is also great to practice on if you intend to study in Japan.

The 240字 size is great for beginner and lower intermediate level students while 400字 size is great for upper intermediate to advanced level students. 

Loose Leaf Notepaper

I've done my best to recreate two popular styles in which notebooks are printed in Japan. 


The first is made with "guide dots" that allow you to visuallize a box to write in.  The second reminds me of spread sheet paper (if you even know what that is).  The guides on this paper allow you to make notes in three font sizes.

These papers are great if you want to make notes in Japanese!
