Would you like to write your favorite Kanji characters and Japanese words in calligraphy?

At Calligraphy Kyoto, you can learn about the Japanese mindset and Japanese language through calligraphy.
Calligraphy is also related to the Zen philosophy as it’s a quiet time to relax and self reflect.
By breathing in the scents of ink while you sweep your brush and concentrate , you can become totally immersed in your work.

Words have power, and you will be shown how to convey that power through the art of writing as a professional calligrapher teaches you the basics. In the end, you will create your own work of linguistic art.
Instruction is available in English, Mandarin Chinese , or Japanese.
