Japanese Calligraphy Experience

for Tourists Visiting Japan

Why don't you join the Japanese calligraphy experience after checking out of your hotel?

Japanese calligraphy is one of traditional Japanese cultures. Our Japanese calligraphy school, which is near Matsudo Station, provides the special program of the Japanese calligraphy experience for international tourists visiting Japan. Through our program, you can (i) have a once-in-a-lifetime cultural experience in Matsudo and (ii) creative your one-and-only original Kanji artwork in the world yourself. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What You Can Expect

You can write favorite Kanji characters on a thick paper board called "shikishi" and take it back home as a memorial. The number of Kanji characters choosable is up to 3. Those of translated your name into Japanese or with positive meaning like "愛(love)", "平和(peaceful)", "挑戦(challenge)", etc. are very popular.
