What You'll Do

In this calligraphy art workshop focused on the beauty of writing “lines”,  the host’s aim is for you to experience the joy of self-expression and provide you with an opportunity for self-reflection through the art of calligraphy.

To begin, the host will demonstrate a Japanese calligraphy performance and help you envision your ideal representation of the kanji character “ICHI” (meaning “one”). Next, you will grind an ink stick on an inkstone to create liquid ink. You will then practice writing “ICHI” on practice papers and strive to create your own masterpiece.

You can select a frame for your “ICHI” artwork and decorate it to your liking.

– People of all ages and from any corner of the world can find resonance in “ICHI.”

– As the creator, you will experience a sense of accomplishment, and you will also enjoy viewing the diverse range of “ICHI” artworks crafted by others.

Kanako Ai

Hello! My name is Kanako, and I’ve been practicing Japanese calligraphy since I was nine years old. I hold a teacher’s license and enjoy teaching this beautiful art form to both kids and adults.

Now, I’m excited to introduce a fresh approach to calligraphy specifically designed for foreign tourists. This experience is truly unique and can only be found here. I would be absolutely delighted if you would join me in expressing your thoughts and emotions through the graceful strokes of a brush on paper, capturing the essence of black-and-white aesthetics.
