About
Thanks to the popularity of Zen Buddhism and its famous quotes written on hanging scrolls, Calligraphy Art has started to attract attention from all over the world. Experience with me a way of meditation, focusing on your brush to make a nice looking stroke, focusing on the sound the brush and focusing on the nice smell of the ink that helps your body and your mind to relax.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Kyoto Memories
Mar 2019 • Family
It was our first time to Japan and decided Mari was the best choice for our private guide. I was traveling with my elderly parents from California and we preferred to use our time to explore Kyoto's off-the-beaten track. We enjoyed our tour especially Otagi nenbutsuji-temple, Toriimoto streets, and lunch at a local family-run restaurant. Mari was very professional and we were at ease throughout our full-day tour. I highly recommend Mari for consideration as private guide to fellow family travelers.

Amazing experience and so friendly, funny & passionate teacher
Sep 2018 • Couples
As it was summer time in Kyoto, Mari gave us the choice to have a calligraphy experience either indoor (typical Japanese house) or outdoor (a beautiful and refreshing garden). We chose the outdoor session and it was amazing!
Her workshop is located in a potter's garden surrounded with beautiful potteries.
It was so calm and relaxing and they were so friendly that they offered us a bowl of matcha tea to drink during our experience.

Mari is a very enthousiastic and passionate teacher, she speaks perfect english and even better, she knows how to communicate and teach all the basics in a fun and interesting way. We came back with a nice self-made souvenir and it was so good talks and so hard to leave the place that she showed us the bamboo forest looked nearby and took the train together back to the city center.
We highly recommend Mari Sensei!
