Taught a lot about Background history and development of calligraphy.
"Taught a lot about Background history and development of calligraphy."
It was a great session with a professional teacher who not only taught us the basics of Japanese calligraphy, but also the background history and development of calligraphy to its current form.
This is a must-do activity for any foreigner visiting or living in Tokyo.
I will definitely take more lessons when I visit again!

The experience was really enjoyable!!
The calligraphers were very nice and very helpful, they explained us the process and each move slowly, and sometimes multiple times so that I could fully comprehend it. If I still struggled, the instructor would take my hand and guide me.
thanks for polite and wonderful time!
