The teacher was patient and kind and encouraged two young girls very well in this difficult art form. Highly recommended 👍

Let me tell you, if you are in the hot streets of Tokyo, you need a relaxing activity to do IN the air conditioning. This was so fun. You learn a little history about how the writing came to be (which was very interesting). Atsushi...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
