    I said it was Japanese because I saw お and も. Can it be Japanese 草書? Japanese use a lot of Chinese characters (Kanji) too

  • I am with tang ho on this one. There are some chinese heavy cursive that can look similar to japanese kana, but with mutliple in one couplet I think Japanese heavy cursive is way more likely.
