Calligraphy Class

Calligraphy, known as ‘Shodo’ (‘the way of writing’), is taught to children from a young age and holds great importance in Japan. In Kyoto, we can arrange for you to join a group calligraphy class in which you will be taught the basics of shodo by an expert teacher. Learn how to prepare the ink and load the brush and learn the strokes involved in creating some basic kanji characters. You will be taught about the 3 writing systems that make up Japanese script: kanji, hiragana and katakana.
