The art of calligraphy is to write freely with a brush filled with ink. In this program, participants can experience calligraphy, which is considered an oriental form of art, using the Akama inkstone, a craft of Ube, a representative product of Yamaguchi Prefecture. Under the guidance of the instructor, who is also a calligrapher, visitors can not only write letters, but also experience the spirituality of calligraphy, which is based on the importance of “ma” (space), the Japanese spirit and the state of mind that is expressed in the letters.

We hope you will experience the fun of putting your favorite words on Japanese paper. You can also make a bookmark from your finished work to take home as a memento of your experience. After the calligraphy experience, enjoy a cup of green tea and o-hagi (rice cakes), a specialty of Kamata no Megumi, the venue for the event.
