Our host was so welcoming and took time to explain to us all the different aspects of the process in a very detailed maneer and didn’t hesitate to show us several times the steps. Great pictures and great souvenir. Must do in Osaka !

Brilliant couple of hours. Would recommend both the calligraphy lesson and the tea ceremony in a kimono. A highlight of our trip and some great pictures as well as a wonderful souvenir from the calligraphy lesson
