I’ve been practicing Japanese calligraphy since I was 5 years old and today, I hold a teaching license in the art. After getting married, I decided to start my own calligraphy class – in which I currently teach 20 people every week. In addition to teaching, I also do large-scale calligraphy performances using over-sized brushes and large-scale canvases. I hope to popularize Japanese calligraphy and Japanese culture through my teaching and performances.

    Nice presents to take home

    Nice experience and the teacher is nice and friendly. This was perfect for creating some presents for friends and family back home. The place itself is a little difficult to find, so I suggest you make sure that you have google map access.

    Great teacher, very patient

    Great teacher, very patient - clearly has taught calligraphy for some time and knows her stuff! My only disappointment was that I didn't get the souvenir I actually wanted and paid for. I wanted the bell, but had to settle for a fan as that was the only option [afterI had arrived]. Her house isn't easy to find though - I was significantly helped by google maps. I dread to think where I'd have ended up without internet!!

    Beautiful and Unique

    Yunagi is very sweet and I had a great time learning the proper techniques for painting my very own Kanji. I opted to paint on paper so I could frame it and hang it up when I got home. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    My only issue was finding the location. Japanese addresses are very confusing for me so I got a little lost and ended up late. Make sure to ask for more specific directions if you are directionally challenged like me.

    Great experience

    I thought calligraphy was difficult to learn but Yunagi-san was very welcoming and patient in teaching the steps until i gain confidence. Yunagi-san is definitely a professional! Thank you for the great experience! I will be sure to attend the class again!

    I had a really good Calligraphy lesson with teacher Yunagi. I learned everything from the right posture to the right steps one should follow while writing. I also got to practice my favorite Kanji and after that wrote it on the fan which became an excellent memory to bring home. Wish her all the best in Calligraphy show that she will have in Paris!
