What you'll do

You can experience as many as three important cultures of Japan in one day. There is nothing for you to prepare. I will prepare everything I need for you. First, you can practice Zen meditation. The time required 45 minutes. At the beginning of the class, I will give instructions. After that, concentrate on only breathing. Stare at inside yourself in the nature. Second, you challenge calligraphy. The time required for 1 hour. The model is "Zen words". Zen words derive from the anecdotes and scriptures of Zen Buddhist monks.For example, “Reidanjichi”(冷暖自知). It means “Check by yourself whether it is cold or warm.” I will translate your favorite words into Japanese. You write the word with a brush. If you wish, I will make your name as Kanji. And finally, you write your favorite words on signature board. The signature board is a gift for you. Third, you will experience the tea ceremony. The time required for the tea ceremony is 1 hour. I prepare Matcha and Japanese sweets for you. I will give it to you in the traditional way. Let's make Matcha together! Finally, I will take a picture of the situation and give you the data! I will give you a break during this experience. So you can always relax. You can have a fun Japanese culture experience in one day. Come to see me!(^-^)
