We both enjoyed calligraphy so much !!
"We both enjoyed calligraphy so much !!"
I just wanted to say what a great time we had with the calligraphy experience. It was very good and your welcome was lovely. We loved how the teacher guided us through the steps, it has made us want to start to study calligraphy. We both enjoyed it so much, it was like a moment of meditation making us feel relaxed and very happy. Thank you again.

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!
