Masa’s calligraphy experience is the hidden gem of Okinawa. Truly a sweet man with an awesome talent that he wants to share. I came away from the experience with a greater knowledge of calligraphy and a souvenir that I’m proud to hang in my home. He’s really friendly and went out of his way to help me. If you’re vacationing in Okinawa, definitely do this!
