A really lovely peaceful 1 hour origami class. Just myself and my 11 year old daughter in the group so we moved quickly and made several pieces. Tomoko our tutor was a delightful lady and very kind to my daughter.
A welcome break from the hustle and crowds
We came away with a booklet of instructions.
My fiance and I took a private calligraphy class together. The teacher did a great job guiding us and helping us to paint perfect calligraphy strokes. Calligraphy is much harder than we thought, but by the end of class we got the hang of it! We were able to take home all of our practice pages, and also our final 'masterpiece' which we've displayed on our wall at home :
An easy to find location, around the corner from the National Museum.Thoroughly enjoyed this calligraphy lesson with Yoshei. I have a martial arts background so I can appreciate the spirit and process of this traditional calligraphy. Yoshei was a very genuine practitioner of the art, and was very encouraging and supportive while you were made aware of the disciplines of the tradition. Yoshei made sure you'd have something to take home it can cost for retail calligraphy. It felt a bit rushed, I could have comfortably spent 1.5 hrs instead of 1hr and paid a bit extra for this unique experience. Really nice teacher and experience!
a great experience! We had a blast and got to experience Japanese culture.They were friendly, helpful and charming. Highly recommended.
This was so much fun and a great experience for all ages. The ladies could not have been nicer or more engaging. And relaxing after long day of travel.
Excellent introduction to the art of calligraphy. Smart, informative teacher and easy-to-find location. A small taste with a lovely art piece to keep at the end.
Meiko was our instructor and she was brilliant! She guided us through the steps needed to write Japanese characters, including signing our work with our own names in Japanese, and we got to take away our work as keepsakes. It was great fun, very interesting to see how to do it properly, and Meiko's encouragement along the way made it most enjoyable! Would do it all over again for sure.
Great experience! I chose calligraphy lesson. My sensei Tomoko was very encouraging and taught me a lot about shodo. Thank you so very much.

Booked this class for my husband, teenage son and self. Very enjoyable time was had by all of us. We complete three origami shapes which got progressively more difficult. We had a lot of fun and would happily do this class again.
This class was awesome! It was really fun to have our own personal origami instructor. A nice skill to learn that you can do at home.
Brilliant. The WAK, Womens Association of Kyoto were outstanding. My girls and I loved being dressed in kimonos and learning origami. Great afternoon, brilliant. Highly recommend. They were so gracious, excellent English, beautiful women
Our family of 4 enjoyed the calligraphy class. It was very informative and we got to practice several times and we got to take home our best writing. We are glad we took the class. We went to the wrong address first as it was not clear exactly where the class was.
Instructor was very nice and patient. We enjoyed our calligraphy and would recommend taking the class. Great change of pace from all the walking- very relaxing and fun!
Such a nice experience for my three kids under age 10. My son was hesitant but after a lollipop bribe, loved his samuri outfit. Origami session was 30 mins. Which was short. Could have spent a good hour. They displayed other examples but we only did one.
Similar to Taiko, it was a little intimidating trying to find this place when you don't speak the language. We did find the building easier, though. And the class was fun. We brought several origami projects plus a booklet of instructions home.
