What to Expect

Would you like to write Japanese characters and alphabet with brush and Indian ink? That's Japanese calligraphy, the traditional art. Works of calligraphy are admired for the accurate composition of their characters but also for the way the brush is handled in their creation, the shading of the ink, and the balanced placement of the character on the paper. I will get ready for the inkstone, brush paper. Just bring yourself and enjoy calligraphy.
If you want to experience tea ceremony, you can. A friend of mine is a teacher of tea ceremony. Tea ceremony has a long history and has deep roots in Kyoto. There are complex steps to taste tea. Please follow the manners. Seasonal Japanese sweets are offered before drinking tea. It brings you out the better flavor of tea.Both experiences are held in a private house. You can relax and learn the Japanese culture better.
