tatsuI wrote “Tatsu“. It means “the Dragon” in English. It is fifth sign of Chinese zodiac.

  1. “Tatsu” means the Dragon

“Dragon” has some kanji symbols. This kanji symbol is used for year, date, time or direction.

Next year is “Tatsu-Doshi”. I provide the image file ( transparent png ) of this kanji symbol. If you send somebody a New Year’s card, please use this image.

    I took some calligraphy classes while I was living in Japan, and I wanted to do some dragon kanji for the New Year. Where can I find the stroke order for the kanji? Would you be able to email it to me? Thanks very much, Pam.
