Dejima Font is a popular font in the Serif (Mincho) style. Mincho fonts are characterized by triangular endings on horizontal strokes ("uroko"), sweeping strokes that taper off ("harai") and hooks on the bottom of vertical lines ("hane"). They are comparable to Latin serif fonts. Because mincho fonts are relatively easy on the eyes, they are preferred for lengthy texts.  For that reason, mincho fonts are often used for newspapers, books, contracts and similar documents in Japan. In general, these fonts have thin horizontal strokes and thick vertical strokes, giving them a weight that is ideal for headlines, logos, kanji tattoos, and kanji T-shirts.
