Writing the word "human" using Japanese characters or writing (also known as kanji) is deceptively easy. It can be completed in as little as two downward, curving strokes. Beginning from the top, draw a line downward, curving the direction of the pen or pencil slightly to the left as you go. Next, find the halfway point of the line you have just drawn. Once you have found the halfway point, draw a line from the halfway point downwards and curving slightly to the right. The end result will look very much like a wishbone. You have just successfully completed writing the word "Hito" or human in Japanese characters.
