I started learning Japanese Calligraphy when I was 6 years old and eventually earned an acting master level (Shihan-dai) when I was 22 years old.

During my stay in Canada for a year while studying abroad, I learned what a pleasure it was to teach people in other countries about Japanese culture through teaching Japanese and giving my calligraphy as a present.

After coming back to Japan from Canada, my love of traveling overseas has given me the opportunity to work at one of the biggest travel agencies in Japan for 6 years as an overseas tour specialist.

I’ve learned that engaging with the local culture is the way to have the most memorable travel experience when visiting these countries.

Because I wanted visitors in Japan to experience the mindset and the art of Japanese culture easily through calligraphy as much as possible, I started offering my Japanese calligraphy experience lesson. Feel free to join!
