I have learned calligraphy since I was young. This was due to my mother's suggestion to calm the feelings and to concentrate on things.
I would like to invite guests from overseas who are interested in calligraphy to experience the mysterious air by the smell of India ink and the kanji characters written by a brush.
Please bring the best piece created by yourself as one of Japan's memories.

What a special experience this was. I greatly enjoyed my calligraphy lesson. Kiyoko’s English was very good and she showed great care with her instruction and guidance. She provided a lovely morning tea, which was a bonus.

Kiyoko-san gave a great lesson in calligraphy. She was willing to bear with my poor Japanese, and she helped me learn very well! This experience is very well worth it.

We had an excellent time trying a bit of Japanese calligraphy. Kiyoko is very kind and patient and I'd happily recommend this experience. Thank you.

A lovely little experience as a break in between walking around Osaka, and you get to take home your best pieces. Kiyoko is very patient and supportive!
