Japanese Typewriter In Action

We all know that writing Japanese can be a difficult thing to wrap one's head around - especially if one comes from a world where there are only 26 alphabetical symbols to Japan and its 2000+ symbols of kanji, and 76 each of hiragana and katakana symbols.

It's daunting.

A week or so ago, I wrote about the guy who created the so-called first practical Japanese typewriter.

Want to see a version of it (a later version) in action... a version that supposedly improved upon the original 'successful' one? Japanese type II suganuma typewriter.

All I know is that I write in English with a pen and paper faster than that, and I am sure there are many Japanese people who can do the same with kanji.

Thanks, Julien!
