The Japanese language has a beautiful, soothing and elegant sound. Listening to beautiful Japanese poems being read has a beautiful flow and nice melodies that are a treat to the ear.

Written Japanese language is also equally fascinating. Written Japanese is expressed in three sets of characters (
Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji)
Kanji is those sets of very complex yet amazingly beautiful characters that originated in China. Elegant and beautiful strokes are used to create the most beautiful symbols that are not only soothing for the eyes to look at but are in fact art works in themselves.

Below are three illustrations of the Japanese Kanji symbol for the word "Love". The more I look at it, the more appreciation I have for its beauty.

lovely looking, isn't ?
