What you'll do
The first step is to understand the basic knowledge on Japanese writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana syllabary and Kanji (Chinese character). After a brief lecture/demonstration, you can decide what you like to write for your own keepsake. You can pick from the Hiragana syllabary for the pronunciation of your name, or the Kanji characters which is your favorite words or have a nice meaning etc. You can use all tools (brushes, ink, paper) at this workshop. Now it is your challenge time. You can practice writing and writing until you write your dream characters. I am happy to help you during the lesson providing tips. Finally you write your best calligraphic image on a Japanese paper card board. As an option, you can buy a traditional Japanese-style fancy scroll or wall hanging where the card board can be put in nicely, to take to away as a souvenior.
Why don't you try Japanese Calligraphy, while sightseeing in the Tsukiji Outer Market and visiting the Tsukiji Honganji Temple or shopping in Ginza? The lesson takes just 120 minutes after the lunch or before the dinner. It is held in my companies' office where I work as an editor. The building is located opposite the Tsukiji Outer Market. I have a teaching instructor certificate in Japanese calligraphy as a Grand Master in the Shoseikai School, which is a nationally recognized organization in Japan. My calligraphy works have been accepted in several exhibitions and have received awards. I studied Journalism as a graduate student in the USA. Through the experience, I really felt I would like people from around the world to learn more about Japanese culture.
