Description

The Tokyo Calligraphy School located in downtown Tokyo just a 7-min walk from JR Yoyogi Station is a calligraphy school with history founded in 1918, celebrating 100 years in 2018. It is said that language is proof of humanity, and writing is proof of culture; in this vein of thought shodo, or Japanese calligraphy, is sublimed as traditional Japanese culture, and this school's mission is to keep handing on the torch by maintaining educational calligraphy and attending education alike. We also want to disseminate 'beautiful writing.' With these principles in mind, we offer educational lessons in calligraphy, penmanship, and shodo for practical use.
Students also have many opportunities to present their works, and our school holds calligraphy exhibits and lectures to promote Japanese calligraphy. What is more, we also offer calligraphy experience lessons in various languages for international visitors, so feel free to experience this traditional part of Japanese culture as a part of your memory of sightseeing in Tokyo.

Our language staff can speak Czech and Polish as well.
