Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. This traditional and formal art may seem esoteric, but this is not the case. Anyone is capable of creating a fantastic work of art by themselves after acquiring the basic concepts and fundamental skills of this art.

Learning ikebana promotes a better understanding of the Japanese view of nature; a crucial step in appreciating the unique aesthetics, emotions and thoughts that merge to create this visual art form.

Flower arranging used to be a required "mannerism" for well-educated men, such as samurais or monks. Since you have travelled to this "strange island", it would be a waste not to experience our genuinely unique culture!

Calligraphy is one of the traditional Japanese cultures. It's a simple art form to write letters with black ink on white paper. However, the form of the art work can vary greatly according to the person who creates it, which is another charm of calligraphy.

Nowadays foreign people are often fascinated with calligraphy feeling an attraction to the design properties of kanji (Chinese characters). You may believe that painting kanji characters is very difficult, but it's not the case when you approach it as if you were drawing a pictograph or picture since kanji was originally a set of hieroglyphs. Even beginners can create a beautiful work of art under the careful guidance of our instructors.

It has been scientifically proven that ink aroma soothes the mind. Why don't you make your own calligraphy work while spending a relaxing and peaceful time in a traditional Kyoto townhouse? It is sure to become an unforgettable memory of your visit to our ancient island country.
