We'll be in the home of a master calligrapher, in a traditional Japanese-style room where you will learn Shodo—the art of Japanese calligraphy. To begin, I will explain the tools used for Shodo and then you will make the Sumi—a type of black ink. The fragrance of this ink has an aroma effect. You will then start your Shodo based on the sample and guidance of the master of calligraphy. When we're finished with our calligraphy, we'll have Japanese tea and sweets in a comfortable room. You'll be able to take your original work home as a gift in a frame.
Makiko is super host as airbnb. Suika『翠華』 is a professional Sho-do artist with a master license and more than 45 years experience. Sho-do is a big part of her life and she's involved in challenging new fields such as Live Shodo and exhibitions. We'd like to introduce the art of Japanese calligraphy and culture to visitors to our country. Everyday update on ＠Insta『suika_suibokukai』
Shodo trial set I'll provide a Shodo trial writing set with a basic Shodo description for the lesson.
We'll be in central Kobe, a six-minute walk from Kasuganomichi Station on the Hankyu Line, or a 15-minute walk from Sannomiya Station on the JR Line. I'll send an email with directions from the station to the house as soon as I confirm your booking. You can enjoy sightseeing in Kobe after Shodo. If you have Japan Rail Pass, this place is very close from Shinkansen station (shin-Kobe) From Kyoto 30 minutes From Osaka 12 minutes.
