What to Expect

Experience "Japanese calligraphy" and "tea ceremony" at a "kominka", a Japanese traditional farmhouse, in Nagoya Japan.

1. History Commentary about the Sengoku Period

If you have a basic knowledge about history, your understanding of Japanese culture will be deeper. You will listen to commentary for about 15 minutes with an easy-to-understand slide show about Nagoya in the Sengoku period.

2. Japanese Calligraphy Experience

Drip some water on the inkstone and rub down an ink-stick slowly. You will concentrate with the unique smell of the ink in the quiet atmosphere. After learning the basics of Japanese calligraphy such as how to hold and move the brush, you will select symbols with your favorite meaning and designs among samples. When you write on the clean copy, the clean copy of your work will be framed as a souvenir for a wonderful experience of Japanese calligraphy.

3. Tea Ceremony Experience

Then, move to the tea room and we will explain about the tea room setting and utensils. First, please try the Matcha tea as a guest which is served by the host. When you get used to the atmosphere, let’s try to serve tea yourself. Calm your mind and feel the spirit of tea ceremony.
