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!

Ueno, Asakusa
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
