I have 30 years of Calligraphy and 10 years of Japanese-teaching experiences, and I can assist overseas participants to learn Japanese as well in my lesson.

Flow of Trial Lesson

Sitting with your back straight, hold a brush in an uplight position.
Start from learning basic strokes methods including vertical lines.

After learning managing a brush and drawing basic strokes such as “tome”(halt), “hane”(bounce) and “harai”(dispel), you will learn how to stroke simple characters.

Try to write your name. There are three types of character in Japanese —Katakana, Hiragana, and Kanji.
I will offer your own Kanji name that matches your image.

Finally you will be able to compleate various letters and characters.
