Shodo Experience in Nagoya

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Head to the Shurei Shodo classroom close to Nagoya’s Kurokawa train station, at your pre-determined class time. After introducing yourself to your calligraphy teacher, you’ll receive a copy of English instructions written out on a piece of paper with step-by-step instructions.

    Start your session by practicing the proper technique for holding and moving the “fude” calligraphy brush. Your instructor will help show the proper movements for composing lines in this meticulous art form. Experiment with your newfound skills as you try forming different the characters for Japanese words like “dream,” “heart,” “samurai,” and “friend.”

    Once you feel ready, you’ll begin creating a special calligraphy artwork using a paper called “shikishi.” When your one-of-a-kind creation is finished, you’ll also receive a special stamp from your teacher as recognition of your work. You’ll leave your 1.5-hour class session with a special souvenir of your experience to show friends and family back home.
