Once in a while I’ll see an illustration or graphic that has some Japanese in it that looks a bit…off. Why? The dashes. When you write vertically, the dashes need to be vertical as well. Just a head’s up for those incorporating Japanese into their work.

Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

Most of the japanese are giving a lot of tax in their own country. They have gotten many facilities through the different new various features.
