“Kachofugetsu(beauties of nature)” Written in Calligraphy by a Pen


Hello, I’m a writer of KARAKURIJAPAN, Yonosuke.

This article is about calligraphy by a pen. It is a kind of calligraphy written by a calligraphy pen. You can do it only with a calligraphy pen and copier paper, but because it’s very simple, it depends on the expressive skill of whom write it.

At this time, we had a calligrapher by a pen, Ms. Maria write the word “kachofugetsu”.



Do you know what “kachofugetsu” means?


Do you know the meaning of the four-character compounds, “kachofugetsu”?

The letters used in the word are 「ka(flower), cho(bird), fu(wind), and getsu(the moon). They look something related to nature. However, I guess few people know the exact meaning.

Kachofugetsuis a four-character compounds which means a beautiful landscape of nature, and furyu to respect it.


It’s just as it looks like.

Wait! Again we got a word that looks difficult! Furyu! Do you know what furyu means?



What does furyu mean?


Furyu is a sense of beauty which was enhanced in Japan after middle ages.


So furyu is a unique Japanese word. If translated to English, it’s close to the word elegance, but English doesn’t have any word which exactly means same.

So kachofugetsu is a word which represent beauty of Japan, and can’t be used except in Japan!


Used in Title of Songs by Famous Artists!




Kachofugetsu is a unique Japanese word which represent beauties of Japanese nature.

In Japan, many artists released songs the titles of which are this word.

The first is a representative Japanese rock band, SEKAI NO OWARI. I guess many people know them!

SEKAI NO OWARI is one of the most popular bands in Japan. The song kachofugetsu by them is very nice for sure. It reminds me beautiful Japanese nature.

The next is Ketsumeishi. It is a hip-hop group of four people, and has been active for more than twenty years. The song kachofugetsu by them is really good as well, and it’s also the title of an album.

Moreover, many representative Japanese artists, such as Naotaro Moriyama, Remioromen, and Spitz, uses the word kachofugetsu as the titles of their songs or albums.

Kachofugetsu is loved by many top artists. That’s how amazing word it is!
