Koichi

I have started learning calligraphy since 6 years old and live in Kyoto for 30 years. I love Kyoto, calligraphy and T-shirts. In Kyoto, some tourists go to Calligraphy class as an art experience, some buy Kanji T-shirts as a souvenir. Then I have found out. If they write specific Kanji they like, make it printed on a t-shirt, and bring it back as a souvenir, this should be a memorable and unique experience. You can have the kanji you wrote on your t-shirt, not on paper. You can talk to friends about your visit to Japan wearing your own Kanji T-shirt. Please have fun and make a cool T-shirt!
