Calligraphy is the traditional culture which represents Japan and is known worldwide. The history of Japanese calligraphy is very long, and it has bloomed since the Asuka period (593-) when Chinese characters were introduced to Japan. In modern times, it is loved by men and women of all ages. The purpose of calligraphy is not only to write beautiful letters; it is one of the arts where one can express her/his personality or uniqueness.
Why not sit down, relax and make some memorabilia filled with your personality with calligraphy during your trip? It will be a luxurious moment to take time to face one piece of paper in the scent of sweet ink, in a busy daily life.
It is close from touristic places, and you can drop by while sightseeing
You can learn necessary manners for Japanese calligraphy as well, such as a posture and how to use a writing brush
You can take back an original gift with letters written by yourself
Firstly, straighten yourself. The teacher will teach you one by one, from how to hold a writing brush to where to put your hands.
Learn the way a writing brush should be carried for calligraphy, with the sample as your text.
Even if you do not know Chinese characters, do not worry; the teacher will write them with you.
Choose your favorite Chinese characters and write!
You can also learn how to arrange letters artistically.
Practice what you have learnt! Write letters which you have practiced on a round fan.
The original one-of-a-kind souvenir is completed!
The teacher taught me basic points on writing letters with a writing brush. I have learnt that one should not just move a writing brush, but the form is important; just like a baseball swing. The round fan with letters on it written by myself, is a truly wonderful gift. I would love to try Japanese calligraphy again.
