How do Japanese people hand-write the Japanese Quotation Marks (「 」)? Is there a correct stroke order?
I am asking specifically about those used in horizontal writing, although I wouldn't mind knowing about the vertical ones too.

Yes, I believe the stroke order works as normal, starting from the top down. So with '「' you would write the top horizontal line first then as a separate stroke or carrying on from the left corner of the line do the vertical line.
(In modern writing this is usually done in one stroke but I've seen both styles.)
Then with the other bracket simply do the reverse, the vertical line then the horizontal starting from right to left.
