RE: Learning Japanese Caligraphy

I haven't been able to find any Japanese or Chinese caligraphers around my area. If I lived in Japan I'm sure I could just sign up for a class and dive right in, but unfortunately I don't. But whether it's Japanese or Chinese caligraphy doesn't matter as you said, and I'm learning Chinese as well as...
