How to...

The characters you can use are hiragana, katakana, numbers and romaji (upper case).
Be careful not to input unsupported characters because they will not print out.

Enter the characters you want to practice or your favorite words in the textbox.

Check your print layout right away, in Preview.

Use the layout settings below the textbox.
Choose from vertical writing or horizontal writing, and select the size of your text.

Select 「あり」 under 「書き順」 to show the arrows for stroke order and where to start.
This makes it easy for learners who are not used to writing in Japanese.
