With 21 years of experience, I will show you all the tricks of the trade!
- Learn the basics of Calligraphy such as tools and how to hold the brush.
- Prepare ink to be ready to write. It's not only about equipment but also to concentrate.
- Practice different type of strokes and how to handle the brush and ink. Unlike the pencil or pen. I will teach you carefully to write with a brush.
Once you get the hang of it, get a sample of your favorite word. I will write it with your name in Japanese in front of you.
After practicing, write the word on a special paper and take your masterpiece home to show your friends and family!!
You can change to write on a fan (Uchiwa) instead for an additional fee 500 yen.

Who is Wakalture?
Wakana（和香奈）+ Culture= Wakalture
Hi, I'm Wakana.
I was born and raised here in Tokyo. I've lived in Australia (Gold Coast) and Canada (Toronto) to study English. I didn't think I could communicate with people from other countries but now I speak English and I really like to meet new people, make friends and talk about different cultures.
I've been learning Japanese Calligraphy, shodo since I was 8-years old and got a teaching license when I was 22-years old.
I like it because I can concentrate on only doing Calligraphy. That makes me relaxed. It's the best way of de-stress.
I also studied Nutrition and have worked as a dietician. I love to eat, I live to eat!! Most of English words I memorized at first were about food indeed. If you like fish, I can take you to the best Japanese restaurant!!
I have set-up the Wakalture Experience as I want to teach Japanese culture in a fun way to visitors of Japan. My main goal is to help visitors to Japan have a memorable time here in Japan:)
What’s special at Wakalture?
No translators at WakaltureUsing translators could bring misunderstandings sometimes and they convey less information. I want to communicate with visitors directly so that everyone can understand everything clearly. I’m not a native English speaker but I will do my best!! I love talking to people from all over the world:)
Really “REAL” JapanI only teach visitors things for which I have experience in and know about well.
Calligraphy・・・I am a licensed Calligrapher and I’ve been practicing Calligraphy for 21 years.
Cooking・・・I learnt Nutriton at Kagawa Nutriton University and have worked as a dietician.
