Take a brush and experience the culture firsthand!

A tradition passed down from China, calligraphy. In Japan, people have long since taken brush and ink to paper to hone their penmanship. While the practice has become less common, it's still a tradition that continues to be taught in schools. All the tools necessary like ink, inkstones, brushes, etc. will be prepared, so you don't have to bring anything! Experience the Japanese culture for yourself♪

Large scale standing calligraphy♪

Write characters with a giant brush on the large 180cm×90cm paper!! Create a large scale work while standing!! A calligrapher will demonstrate and explain the process♪ Unlike normal calligraphy, where you sit down at a desk, you use your entire body. It feels completely different and the finished product has a greater impact. It's sure to be a valuable experience…☆ And of course, you can take it home with you!!
