About New Kakuji Font Family

New Kakuji is designed from the Kakuji style of characters originating during the Edo period of Japan. New Kakuji has expanded the historical character set to include the surnames from the ancient Chinese text: Hundred Family Surnames, as well as the most common surnames in Japan, in addition to many other historically and culturally significant words, going well beyond the scope of characters that were used in the Edo period. No other font has expanded the character set of the Kakuji Style to the same extent as New Kakuji.

A Latin alphabet expansion inspired by the old Kakuji style has also been included for western audiences and designers.

New Kakuji contains over 500 Chinese/Japanese characters along with over 200 additional Latin characters or symbols.

The solid and blocky style of New Kakuji is ideal for seal designs or other branding designs and should be used at larger point sizes.
