It’s not often you find calligraphy teacher who offers lessons in English! Why don’t you join us?
I went to a calligraphy exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum where my work is exhibited with my foreign students, Sam from the U.S.A., Shalini from India and her friend from Jamaica. Sam and Shalini come to my class regularly.
I also explained about the pieces that were on display. Shalini was surprised to see how many times cherry blossoms, chirping birds, rivers and mountains were described across the exhibited works.
