WAKI TOWN, Japan - A child selects her favorite drawing she made for the U.S.-Japan joint calligraphy event, “Kakizome,” at Waki Town, Japan, Jan. 6, 2018. During the writing portion of the event participants painted words like “friend” and “bond” as a way of bringing two cultures from around the world together. They also got to place their favorite calligraphy painting on a wall to be viewed by everyone in attendance. “Kakizome” is a tradition the Japanese people participate in at the beginning of each year, and it resembles what is known in the Western Hemisphere as a New Year’s resolution.
