Features of Kanteiryu
"Kanteiryu" is based on the style of letters used in the titles and billboards of Kabuki plays. It builds on the Edo Kabuki's stout and energetic sensibility. The original style, as legend has it, was developed by the calligrapher Okazakiya Kanroku (also known as Kantei). The letters were written to fill the writing area with very little spaces between the letters, as a metaphor for filling the theater. Morisawa's "Kanteiryu" is designed with slightly more space between the strokes for better legibility, and is perfect for titles of plays and other events.
