Japanese calligraphy is an art which embodies the elegance of Japan. In these face-to-face lessons, you can learn how to create art works of calligraphy in English. Make your own calligraphy works in my classroom and take them with you as your own precious souvenirs!
The face-to-face calligraphy experience is available at any time. For those who come in person, you can also take pictures wearing yukata, kimono (Taisho Roman hakama) jinbaori, sword (imitation sword), or armor if you wish. After the calligraphy lesson, you also have the option to enjoy matcha and sweets.
Please feel free to contact us if these options interest you!
