Experience painting on Japanese traditional paper Washi! Master Toyokuni teaches sumi-e ink wash painting at all levels in English or Japanese during lessons of 90 minutes at Toyokuni Atelier Studio 🙂 Make a reservation and bring 5.000 yens per person.
As a special offer for foreigners only, his son Yuta teaches sumi-e to beginners in English or Japanese during lessons of 30 minutes. No reservation needed; just bring 1.000 yens per person. You typically draw a simple cat’s face to get used to the brush and black ink then see how to paint a Daruma, bamboo or landscape with mountains and rivers.
For practical reasons, each lesson at the art gallery between Jimbocho and Kudanshita subway stations (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) is limited to 5 students. Contact the Yes in Japan team to request special arrangements for bigger groups or professionals on business trip in Japan.
