Here are the basic rules of stroke order. 1. Write from top to bottom. three Related Principle: when a kanji consists of an upper and a lower part, the upper part is written first. now minute Write from left to right. river Related Principle: when a kanji consists of a left and a right part, or a left, a middle, and a right part, write in the order of left, middle, right. woods language to work When a vertical and a horizontal line cross, the horizontal line is written before the vertical line. ten seven large Exceptions: and related kanji (1) rice paddy town man (2) and related kanji king life When a kanji consists of a left, a middle, and a right part and the left and right parts consist of one or two strokes each, the middle part is written first. small Exception: fire When a kanji has an enclosure, it is written first. day country
