Japanese Calligraphy experience


Join us for the Japanese calligraphy experience!

Learn the art of Japanese and calligraphy from a master calligrapher through a brief lesson. Immerse yourself in the experience of creating a unique piece of art that serves as a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Write your favorite letters on a folding fan, or Japanese traditional paper called "WA-SHI". You can choose your favorite words such as "love-愛", "peace-平和", or if you want to write your name in Japanese letters, we are here for you!


  • Session with a calligraphy master for using a brush and traditional ink.
  • Start from making black ink with an inkstone to calm your mind.
  • Choose your favorite words and make your original art.

Japanese calligraphy has been prevalent in the country since the 6th century, influenced by Buddhist teachings. This form of writing is not solely used for communication, but also serves as a method of focusing the mind. Our calligraphy experience offers a unique opportunity to appreciate this art form and connect with the spiritual foundation of ZEN.
