Yu Kyokasyo is a contemporary textbook face that incorporates the strokes of ballpoint pen or pencil. Developed in collaboration with a textbook publisher, this typeface meets the requirements of textbook faces, such as stroke order of Kanji or proportion of Hiragana and Katakana characters. The typeface consists of two styles, one intended for vertical typesetting (for reading or penmanship textbooks) and the other for horizontal typesetting (for mathematics or science textbooks).
