I am very happy about my decision to visit this Calligraphy Class. The course is excellent for everyone who is interested in this field and wants to try it by oneself. The host is patient, motivated, supportive and open for any questions.

One of the best classes I've ever taken! Calligraphy in Japan is not only writing kanji - it's a meditative form of abstract art. Atsushi runs classes in two suburbs: Shibuya and Shinjuku. This is no tourist gimmick - it's a real school with local...More

Let me tell you, if you are in the hot streets of Tokyo, you need a relaxing activity to do IN the air conditioning. This was so fun. You learn a little history about how the writing came to be (which was very interesting). Atsushi...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
