We will practice calligraphy in a quiet cafe. While listening to calm music, we can relax and focus. I will teach you to write your favorite Chinese characters(kanji) and then you can take it home. It will make for a wonderful souvenir or gift. After the lesson, let's enjoy snacks and drinks while talking!
Hello! My name is Ayuka! I work in Kobe as an after-school calligraphy instructor for children. I also volunteer at the Kobe International Community Center(KICC), teaching calligraphy to foreigners living in Kobe. I've been practicing calligraphy since I was 6, and I now hold the highest rank of "Shihan." Calligraphy is one of Japan's many beautiful culture activities. By sharing calligraphy, I want to connect with people for all over the world! I can't speak much English, but gestures and smiles go a long way.

Calligraphy trial set
Let's meet in front of JR Motomachi Station, West Exit. I will be waiting there holding something for you to recognize. The cafe is a 2-minute walk from the station. It is on the third floor of a building, amongst many other cafes and restaurants. Motomachi is famous for one of three Chinatowns in Japan!
