What to Expect

Recently, calligraphy performances have become a popular method among young calligraphers to reach an audience, rather than exhibiting works after they are complete. The performance idea has gained the calligraphic art new fans. Calligraphy expresses a person’s personality and gives a good insight into that person’s way of life. It touches the heart and somehow, clears the mind.

Authentic and interesting Tea ceremony

I would recommend this activity for all people going to Kyoto. The ceremony gave a feeling of being part of the old traditions of Japan. We also had our daughter of two years old with us and Ryokufu had good care of children and made it possible for us to participate.

Ryokufu I.

Thank you for visited me to tea ceremony. I had good time your group. I hope you had good time in Japan!
