What we will do
With over 20 years of experience, I will show you all the tricks of the trade!
Learn the basics of Calligraphy such as tools and how to hold the brush.
Prepare ink to be ready to write. It’s not only about equipment but also to concentrate.
Practice different type of strokes and how to handle the brush and ink properly. I will teach you carefully to write with a brush.
After practicing, write the word on a special paper with your name and take your masterpiece home to show your friends and family!
Hi, I’m Wakana.
I was born and grew up here in Tokyo. I’ve lived in Australia and Canada to study English.
I really like to meet new people, make friends and talk about different cultures. At the moment I offer Calligraphy, Cooking, Origami and Tsumami-zaiku workshops.
I am a licensed calligraphy instructor. I’ve been learning Japanese Calligraphy (“Shodo”) since I was 8 years old.
I also studied Nutrition and have worked as a dietitian. I love to eat, I live to eat!! If you like fish, I can take you to the best Japanese restaurant!
I want to introduce Japanese culture in a fun way. My main goal is to help visitors to Japan have a memorable time here:)
Where we will meet
The workshop is held in central Tokyo, it’s about 10 minutes away from Akihabara or Ueno.
What I will provide
What to bring
Please do not come barefoot as it will be held in a local home otherwise you need to purchase socks.
Please come with older casual clothes. Especially for the Calligraphy class, the ink stains permanently.
An additional fee(500 yen) will be needed on site if you wish to write on an “uchiwa” fan instead of sheet of paper.
For security purposes, I will ask you to send a photo of your photo ID.
