What is the correct stroke order to write this kanji 濃 in Japanese? How many strokes will it have and in what correct order. Assume a japanese writing exam situation.

Also does anyone have a picture of a handwriting example of this particular kanji handwritten just using common regular pen that could be considered by Japanese goverment officials and also Japanese people in common, as a good and correct example of the handwriting of this kanji? For non-cursive (regular but handwritten), semi cursive and cursive style. (not a picture of one written using printing or fountain pen or brush).

Stroke order is:

For future reference, this is easily Googleable. See kakijun.com as a resource.

For the second part of your question, I don't think there's a "standard" by the government―let alone by everyday people―for what is considered readable. If they can read it, then it's readable.

  • I would like to know how is it supposed to look like in an actual handwritting just using regular pen (not fountain pen or brush and not a digital one of course) in all three styles (in Chinese language there are non-cursive, semicursive and cursive styles, I don't know if in Japanese language they use semicursive handwriting style as often?). As for the part where I said "readable", just ignore it. If it is the "correct" way to handwrite it, then it should be readable!

    What's posted above doesn't count as a handwritten form?

  • I found one [here] (yamasa.cc/ocjs/kanjidic.nsf/SortedByKanji2THEnglish/…), but there is no information as to whether this is semi cursive or cursive.
