Hana (flower)

 

花 

is hana in kanji ( traditional Chinese characters used in the modern Japanese writing system) it means flower, and is a direct translation for my name, Hannah. (It also means nose but I picked flower and ignored the nose part)

My supervisor Saido Sensei teaching me the stroke order for Hana

I learnt to write my name in Kanji in calligraphy during another end of term lesson at Namioka school. It’s amazing what great teachers these kids are, all they want to do is help you and make you happy.
