We have decided to take our vacation this year in Tokyo, we are always looking for something local and if possible combined with artistic experience.
We have found Wakalture on trip advisor with very high recommendations so we booked us the Wakalture experience.
Wakana was a good teacher - very friendly and guided us gently in the class. We got to eat whatever we cooked, and both the udon and tamagoyaki tasted really good!
She spoke good English which allowed for good conversation on Japan and our travels.She...More

Wakana is a very kind and easygoing person. She explains things well and provides good guidance, all in a cosy atmosphere. I booked an introductory class where all the equipment was provided by Wakana. So thank you for the great experience, I learned a lot!
I was really happy we took time to go to Wakalture. Wakana is a super talented certified calligrapher, and so nice!
We took the beginners class, and she showed us what to do, while explaining about the calligraphy itself. I enjoyed this a lot and...More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
