This is a kind of paper that is used in all Japanese manuscripts. Vertical writing usually starts from right to left and from top to bottom. Horizontal writing starts from left to right and from top to bottom. Here are some tips for you.

Vertical Write

  4. Punctuation marks: usually occupy their own squares. Exception: when it appears at the top of the next line, it is written in the lower right hand side next to the last word in the current line.
  5. Small characters: each occupies 1 square and is placed in the top right corner
  6. The subhead (if applicable): 1 empty row before and after. It starts with the 3rd square of a new line. If there are no sub-titles, just start the next paragraph in a new line after the previous one.

Essay Tips

  • It always describes about 90% of the words you need. Between 90-100% is great. Below 80% do not give good marks.
  • Always write Kanji if you can. Too many Hiragana will not help you get good signals.
  • Be consistent. Insist on the form used in the essay for sentences. If you want to write without exceeding the limits of words, we recommend using the plain form.
  • Do not use Slang or Talking Words / Expressions in Formal Essay
  • Avoid the same words or the same content too often.
  • Avoid the sentence beyond the Genkouyoushi line 2
  • Ensure the logic of the sentence
  • Make sure there are no errors or write errors. eg. You mean 1 word, but you have written differently.
  • If you need a pencil, make sure that you choose the right one for reading light and simplicity.

Hardness "H". for example, 3H is heavier than H.
