Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

I got my monies worth just in the first lesson! I am amazed she can teach me, where several have failed.

Japanese calligraphy is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language.

In modern calligraphy, a number of tools are used to make a composition. Most basic four tools were collectively called Four Treasures of the Study (Bun-bou Shi-hou).

You need to purchase at Japanese store or Amazon.com

1. A brush
2. An inkstick (sumi).
3. Mulberry paper (washi)
4. An inkstone (suzuri) to grind the inkstick against, mixed with water.

5. A paper weight (bunchin) to hold the paper in place
6. A cloth (shitajiki) to place under the paper (often newsprint is used as well) to prevent ink from bleeding through.

*Cancellation policy* : all class cancellations and reschedules must be done 24 hours in advance before the scheduled lesson. Otherwise, you will be charged for the missed lesson. Please note: if you singed up for classes with me, you have agreed to my cancellation and reschedule policy. If you are late 15 minutes or more for class without prior ...

Awesome experience! My first time learning japanese and Toshi sensei make it look so easy and the way he organized the class made me feel really comfortable.

I'm eager to continue my lessons with sensei.

I can't not tell you how wonderful Toshi is! My son has been taking lessons with Toshi and is so excited and motivated. Toshi has a great way of teaching and his method of teaching really works. I highly recommend trying out lessons with Toshi you will not regret it; and you'll be speaking in no time.

Toshi is very fun to talk to and is always very nice and really teaches you how to pronounce the words and things of that nature. You learn a lot of vocabulary which is very useful.

All my life I have loved the art of making beautiful letters. Since 1994, as interest has arisen, I have taught beginners to move from fledgling efforts... to making letters look artfully beautiful. A student can select the lettering styles they want to use.
