体験できること

You will create a piece of large format Japanese calligraphy in a traditional Japanese room under the supervision of 2nd generation grand master Rei Watanabe who will share her knowledge and demonstrate her technique.
I will explain the basics of Japanese contemporary calligraphy, inks and brushes, many of which will be displayed. Rei sensei will show you how she makes her art, after which you will choose a format and what you want to write (kanji or kana, to choose from our extensive material) before practicing several times under her supervision. I will provide English translation at all time. We will keep your best creation and sent it to you when dry.
Rei sensei is the daughter of contemporary calligraphy pioneer Seikai Kunii, (his art is at MoMA among others). She is the head of Seishinsha (founded in 1946, several exhibitions a year in famous museums in Tokyo), one of the top officials at the Sankei International Calligraphy Association and a famed calligrapher herself with 65 years of experience. Her public demonstrations are rare, her direct coaching very sought-after.
I have myself been practicing calligraphy for 5 years, have exhibited yearly and received several awards.
Other things to note
Please be aware that calligraphy ink is near impossible to take off clothes so don’t wear your best clothes if you’re worried you might stain them. Something comfortable to wear and move is best.

Born in France, I have spent 10 years in Tokyo including 5 years practicing Japanese calligraphy under master Rei Watanabe, whom I met at her yearly solo exhibition at theater Za-Koenji. Since then, I have exhibited in various formats at yearly exhibitions in the following museums : the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, the National Art Center, the Ueno Royal Museum. I have received several awards in the process and am now a dedicated member of two calligraphy associations, Seishinsha and the Sankei International Calligraphy Association in both of which my rank has been rising steadily.

実施場所

Seishinsha calligraphy studio is a two story Japanese house, with a small garden and two parking spaces, fully and only dedicated to the practice of calligraphy where master Kunii used to create and master Rei now produces most her artworks.
The experience will take place upstairs in a wide Japanese room with tatami mats. We’ll practice on a sheet of felt covering the floor.
It is located in a very quiet neighbourhood not far from Koenji station.

Alain contacted me beforehand to ask me what character I wished to work on, which was a great preparation for the workshop. He picked me up at the train station, which gave us the occasion to connect and for me to learn about his background and the impressing qualifications of sensei Rei who held the course. Then, around a cup of tee, we had the occasion to discuss more about the characters I wanted to work on and the sensei guided me towards possible alternative characters and through the choice of styles for each word, before we started the work. She always showed me one possible way of tracing the character before letting me doing my own version, while always giving me enough liberty to express my own sensibility. Sensei Rei has an acute sense of aesthetics and was able to find out my strengths, even as a beginner, in order to guide me for making my next attempt better. She gave me the opportunity to try different techniques and helped me get better at manipulating the ink brush. I felt very at ease during the whole course and enjoyed the solid expertise of sensei Rei and her very strong degree of mastery. I was also given the possibility to express myself in a way that was new and engaging to me. All along the course, Alain was translating my questions to the sensei Rei and her answers to me. He's at ease in French, English and Japanese and helped make me feel comfortable during the course. I got to take all the paper sheets with my various attempts with me and got urged to sign the best ones. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in Japan and its culture.

Alain and the teachers at the school are amazing. They are true calligraphy masters and very patiently show you how to make your own characters. The class is very informal and fun and after a shirt demonstration, you jump right in!

This was the best Airbnb experience that I did out of 4 that I booked! Alain met me personally at the train station to walk me back to place we'd be practicing calligraphy. I met his partner and his partner's mother who is the calligraphy sensei. We started off with a welcoming tea, a discussion about calligraphy, inks, and methods and then transitioned to their calligraphy room. There the magic really started to happen when I learned more of the methods and techniques. Using the ink and brush to draw my selected kanji was half meditative, half instant, iterative critique which I really enjoyed. All three of us got involved with shaping the piece and improving my skills. We concluded the lesson with some more tea and snack. If you're interested in abstract aesthetics, artistic process, or art definitely do this experience!

Alain was a warm and welcoming host. He patiently waited for me at the station when I mixed up my trains, and then lead me on a fifteen minute walk to the studio. There I was met by Rei Watanabe and her daughter, Maiko Watanabe. Rei Watanabe is the chairperson of Seishinsha calligraphy association, which was founded by her father, Seikai Kunii. After introductions and refreshments we went upstairs to the second floor of the studio where the workshop was held. (There is an elevator between the two floors for those who might need one) All the work was with big brushes of various sizes and different shades of black ink on large (30” x 30” approximately) sheets of paper. Rei sensei (teacher) demonstrated various kanji (pictographs), which I in turn attempted to replicate. This portion of the workshop lasted little over an hour. The atmosphere is very warm and social, and Rei Sensei was very supportive. Afterwards there were more refreshments including iced tea and mochi. I enjoyed the experience very much and I would recommend it highly for anyone interested in Japanese calligraphy and culture.

This is certainly a 5 star experience. To get the opportunity to spend a few hours with a 2nd generation calligraphy master Kei Sensei was a complete joy & surprise. Alain was my guide, as Kei Sensei doesn’t speak English. I met Alain at the train station & walked through the lovely town to the beautiful renovated modern, but traditional studio. I was welcomed & given a basic idea of the afternoon. It helped that I had a kanji form in mind. Sensei had 3 books with different forms of that same character - beautiful! Kei Sensei showed me the different types of inks, showed me several brush strokes and then created the form for me, allowing me to take a video. I created the character in two styles until I got something we both liked. What a joy! I highly recommend to anyone passionate about learning about calligraphy.

This was a most beautiful and exiting experience. Alain is a calligrapher married into a family of Japanese calligraphers, already in third generation. The actual teacher is his mother in law Reí Sensei, Alain translates, assists and explains all you need to know. I was received in a Room used as a school for classical calligraphy and around a green tea and sweets they explained me who they are and what they teach, also showed me works of their famous grand father Seikai Kunii. Then we went to the second floor where the real lesson took place, a tatami room dedicated to the large calligraphy. Full of brushes, inks and paper. I do have a little experience with calligraphy so I went straight to work with large format papers under the guidance of Rei Sensei and Alain. Every moment of wonderful splashes of ink was delicious. I was encouraged to simply do, after I was explained the order of the brushes. I definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who likes to draw ink on paper, or simply to those who want to know what is it about. I left full of joy and a set a folded papers which very proudly showed my husband back in the airb&b. It’s about 30 min from Shibuya Station. With google maps there is no way you can get lost.
