Had the most wonderful time with Kimi at Ami Kyoto for my first ever ikebana class. Though the class was brief, the instructor, Kimi summed up the essence of ikebana nicely, leaving me wanting to learn more. It was easy to understand, and Kimi was very friendly and hands-on in guiding us newbies. Would come back for more!
Really interesting class in a lovely environment. Would highly recommend
My wife and I did a calligraphy class with Amy Kyoto during a 4 day trip to the city. We didn't know what to expect but on arrival the friendliness of the staff made us feel at home and set a light hearted but thoughtful tone for the lesson. The session started with some background on the Japanesse alphabet and characters and the history of our teacher and her family in calligraphy. You soon move onto trying it yourself and learn the correct form and techniques to use for the various brush strokes. You get plenty of opportunities to improve as it is apart that it's not that easy to master! At the end of the session you pick a character to practice and ultimately try on some nice paper which is then put into a display case. The teacher also writes your name in Japanese letters and characters which you get to keep. We thourougly enjoyed the session and would recomend it to anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle for a few hours.
