The Japanese kimono is one of the world's instantly recognisable traditional garments. The word kimono literally means "clothing", and up until the mid 19th century it was the form of dress worn by everyone in Japan. They are usually very colourful and elegant.
We picked some beautiful Kimono (Yukata) originally from Japan.
You can choose the pattern you like, and our Japanese instructor will assist you to put it on.
Classical Japanese calligraphy is known as sho or shodo ("the way of writing"). Practiced through the centuries by samurai, calligraphy is not only about writing beautiful characters, but instead putting on paper words or characters have presence and grace.
All Japanese people learn how to do it at school so that everyone has learnt at least once in their lifetime.
In this Japanese calligraphy session, you will wear your Kimono and learn how to use a brush under the guidance of an instructor. Choose your favourite Kanji and finish it! At the end of the lesson, learn how to write your name in Katakana, and sign it to finish your art work! Just like a real Japanese person!
