Hi! My name is Emi.
I was born and raised in Chiba prefecture (next to Tokyo).
When I was young, I received training from my mother, who was a calligrapher, and I became familiar with calligraphy.
I majored in calligraphy at the university.
After I graduated from college, I have been involved in various activities related to calligraphy, such as managing a calligraphy class myself, writing books about calligraphy, ink wash painting (a form of calligraphy) demonstrations, and many more.
My life is dedicated to calligraphy!
In this tour, my goal is for foreigners to learn calligraphy, a traditional Japanese art form. Students will learn to strengthen their mentality with concentration, and to draw what they would like to express. To commemorate learning calligraphy, you will create your one and only T-shirt with your own calligraphy art! It’s pretty cool isn’t it? Nothing makes us happier than when you feel happy wearing the shirt and will remember this experience for a long time!
We are proud that our class is the only specialized one for foreign tourists to experience in Sugamo! Furthermore, you are privileged to learn from a young and beautiful instructor in kimono, and will be able to wear your own calligraphy art printed T-shirt on the spot. Our school is the only one in Tokyo with these unique features!
We especially recommend this tour to people who want to experience calligraphy, learn Japanese culture, and to study the Japanese language.
Since the instructor is female, you can learn calligraphy in a comfortable and relaxed mood. We have received feedback of 5 points out of 5 in another site as well!
I am thrilled to be able to disseminate calligraphy as a traditional Japanese culture to the world.
I'm looking forward to seeing you!
