    Duel with sumo wrestlers and eat chanko nabe in Asakusa show

    Duel with sumo wrestlers and eat chanko nabe in Asakusa show When I asked my nine year old what she wanted to do in Japan she wanted to see sumo. So this day out was much anticipated and turned out to exceed our expectations. It is held in quite a small venue which is tricky when fully booked but allows for a very friendly and "up close" encounter. The host is fluent in English so no tricky communication - there is a display of training and wrestling techniques by the former professional sumo wrestlers and then enough time for all guests to take on a sumo wrestler. These are big guys who tailor their approach to their opponent - lots of humour and theatrics with the kids and women - sometimes a bit more serious with the blokes who thought they could give it a red hot go with a real sumo - but always safe and controlled. Food is apparently the daily fare of sumo wrestlers so like a homecooked Japanese style stew. Simple and sustaining. A great day out.

    Japanese Calligraphy in Tokyo

    Japanese Calligraphy in Tokyo Waki met me at the Kaminarimon and the class was held in a very cozy bar in Asakusa (not open to the public at the moment). Her ability with the brushes is impressive and I enjoyed watching her writing as much as practising. She is very nice and a gentle teacher. We started with the different types of strokes, which I could practice by writing my name that she had translated to Kanji for me. After a lot of practise she helped me find a message ("do your best") that I wrote on a big cardboard that I have brought back home. I have always been interested in calligraphy, but it was my first attempt at shodo, and I was very happy with the lesson. Waki was great answering all my questions and showing the right way to perform each stroke. I did really enjoy the lesson and I think it is a great introduction to the beautiful world of Japanese calligraphy.

    Enjoy Dyeing Experience at an Atelier in Asakusa, Tokyo! This was a very fun and quick experience. It only takes about 40 min to a hour, and you get make your own cool souvenir to bring home. The location is near Asakusa, and there are quite a few things to see in the area for travelers. Its easy to just include the indigo dyeing experience as part of the Asakusa day/itinerary. Highly recommend this activity!
