Japanese Calligraphy Workshop

Do you want to discover the art of calligraphy? Find out all the secrets of the unique writing with this Japanese Calligraphy Workshop in Miyajima. Plus, you'll have the chance to wear a traditional kimono!

Japanese Calligraphy Workshop

Japanese calligraphy is a form of artistic writing dating back to the 6th century. To discover the art, we'll meet at 10 am at the Okeiko Japan Academy in Miyajima, located in a 300-year-old Zen temple.

Once inside the centre, we'll begin the class by choosing our brush, made of bamboo cane, and dip its tip in black ink. Then we'll choose which writing system we want to use: kana or kanji. You'll find out all there is to know about the art form.

For half an hour, you'll learn to write your name with Japanese letters in a unique and calming environment. You'll be sure to enjoy the unforgettable experience

We'll finish the workshop at approximately 10:30 am.

Rent a kimono

You also have the option to rent a traditional Japanese kimono while participating in the calligraphy workshop. You'll have 30 minutes to choose your outfit and get ready. Then, you'll start the writing course which finishes at 11 am.
