Shodo at the temple! ~Japanese Calligraphy class~ お寺で書道!

We have launched several new Shodo classes for foreign people to introduce Japanese traditional culture.

First you take a Japanese Calligraphy class at the studio. Enjoy brushing!



I will take you to the temple after the class. 5 minute walk from our Shodo studio. There are over thirty monks who live and are trained to become a Buddhist priest.


2. Shodo at the temple! 

If you are more than 5 people, you can take a Shodo class at the temple. You will brush sitting straight on your knees on the floor which is Japanese style.

You can take Shodo classes with the monks on the following days, once a month. Please ask the date.

Starting 9:30 and 13:30 for each day for 1.5 hours.
