We had such an amazing time with Wakana! She is so accommodating, patient, talented, and knowledgeable. She gave us a great overview of kanji and calligraphy answering all of our questions and making us feel very welcomed and relaxed. She then helped us choose the individual kanji that we wanted to work on. We were given as much practice time as we needed. She never rushed us and she gave us a very generous amount of supplies and one on one instruction. Once we felt ready, she provided us with a beautiful board to create our final piece. We so greatly enjoyed our time and absolutely love the souvenirs we created. I highly recommend this experience!

My boyfriend and I were in Japan for a few weeks and wanted to have a less touristy experience. I'd dabbled in learning the language a bit on and off for a few years, but had little to no knowledge of kanji. Wakana was so patient and encouraging, smiling the whole time. You can really tell she's passionate about what she does. We also made udon - that was a fun experience - as well as tsumami-zaiku. If you're going to Tokyo or already there, experience Wakalture!

As I know quite a bit of kanji already, I still found it interesting to try my hand at shodō under the eye of Wakana Sensei. She taught me some meanings of kanji that I had no idea about, as well as other parts of the Japanese culture. It was really interesting, as you get to learn about kanji, and also understand more about how difficult it can be.

My husband and I had a private lesson from Wakana. She is extremely friendly, fun, and a great teacher. I would highly recommend this as a great activity if you’re looking to learn how to make Japanese foods and experience more of the Japanese culture in an intimate setting.

The calligraphy class with Wakana was lots of fun and very informative. Wakana was a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. We really enjoyed her class and left with a piece of work that we were all proud of. A must do experience whilst in Tokyo!!
