Art video: Japanese ink wash painting at Toyokuni Atelier (Tokyo)

Watch the cool Get Japan video “Japanese Ink Wash Painting” (59 seconds) to learn about Toyokuni Atelier in Tokyo city then give it a thumb up 🙂 You can see original painted scrolls & postcards of Daruma, cats, dragons, etc. for sale and the artist HONDA Yuta drawing bamboo on paper with a brush during a lesson! If needed, activate the subtitles in English, French…

Our French guide accompanied several travellers to this nice art gallery during 1-day tours to introduce the Japanese culture and sumi-e traditional ink wash painting. Families with children particularly enjoyed the sumi-e activity in English (or in French thanks to the guide)! Think about it when you travel to Asia 🙂
