What you'll do
Create your own Japanese poem (Haïku) with a professional Haïkist !! At the end of the class, we offer you a bord of your Haiku in calligraphy. (Like the picture) - What is Haïku (俳句)? Haiku is a short Japanese poem that has a rhythm, loved all over the world. This rhythm is 5, 7, and 5 syllables that makes up a sentence. In general we create it with a seasonal word called Kigo (季語). -What can we do with a Haiku? As it's a very short poem, you can not say a lot. On the other hand, you can take a Haiku with your discorvings and original impressions of Japan: it will be a great memory of Japan. -How do you do a haiku class? After a short haiku lesson, create your haiku by your language. Introduce your Haiku, and we will try to translate it into Japanese. ★ On 6th August 2019, special event: Night Haiku event in Nakamegro ! After the class, you could enjoy drink a Sake and Bord Game in the Bord Game Bar !! ★Please contact us with your date & time Generally, we hold in Ueno park, but it’s possible to hold in other place.
