We LOVED our class with Chikaku at Ami Kyoto's studio. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and encouraging. We learned about the history of calligraphy, how to make our own ink, the meaning of the brushstrokes, and practiced our brushstrokes. It was a two hour class that just flew by, it was so much fun. I would highly recommend this experience.

We highly recommend a tea ceremony at Ami Kyoto -- my eight-year-old son and I had a delightful afternoon at the tea ceremony, learning about the etiquette and practice of the tea ceremony and then making our own tea. Everyone was welcoming and very kind to us and we will always cherish the memory of the ceremony.

Dear Run1984, Thank you very much for coming to our tea ceremony with your 8-year-old son who was very well-behaved! We are so happy to know that you and your son could learn a lot from our session and enjoyed making tea yourselves. And also we cannot thank you enough for expressing your great feeling here on the review. Your words mean so much to us and encourage us to keep doing what we do as our pleasure. We hope to see you again! All the best, Mari

We had come here 2 and a half years ago, and were wanting to do the calligraphy then, but we didn't have enough time to do it then, so instead did the Tea Ceremony (which was great too!) So when we were back in Japan, we had to come back here and have this experience! The teacher was great and very kind, she shared so much cool information about the writing system, and the way to write the characters.
