[Abstract]In the curvilinear structure that characterizes Hiragana, when character-shaped strokes are classified according to the left and right rotation directions, it became clear that more than 80% of the characters include left and right rotational movements. Furthermore, the result is that 90% or more of the characters including the right rotation exceed 90% in total, and the number of characters including the left rotation exceeds 80%, and it is clear that the right rotation is often involved in the curvilinear structure that is a feature of Hiragana became. Furthermore, the curvilinear elements were divided into each component of Hiragana and the shapes were classified. The elements that make up Hiragana include the number of lines, closed loops, and line turning. First, the number of lines constituting the largest is 2, followed by 3, 1 and 4 in this order, which is the same as the number of hiragana strokes. It was also clarified that the components related to the curvilinear shape have a relationship with the line length. From these, it can be considered that the hiragana character shape and the stroke movement are related to rotational movement and line length, and harmony with the body is made by writing hiragana.
