Hi I’m Emi. All of us (Emi,Chigusa,Miki,Nanako) have been involved Japanese calligraphy since we were small.(more than 20-30 years) After graduating from high schools or universities, we opened our own calligraphy schools, or became calligraphy teacher in high schools. Besides, we have been interviewed by various media and published books on the specialized topic. Considering also our awards in different contests, we are very much confident in our experience and qualifications. We are thrilled to be able to spread calligraphy as a traditional Japanese culture to the world. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Where you'll be
Sugamo is located in the center of Tokyo. There are 2 temples and a shopping street (called Jizo-dori). Jizo-dori is known as "Harajuku for the older generation". It has almost 200 shops selling anything from traditional Japanese snacks such as sembei and mochi, to clothing and fine Japanese green teas. Recommended if you’re interested in a more laid back and "local" Tokyo experience, not overcrowded with tourists.
