Hi!, my name’s Wakana.
I have set-up the Wakalture Experience as I want to teach Japanese culture in a fun way to visitors of Japan.
At the moment I offer calligraphy classes, cooking(Udon making and Tamagoyaki) classes, origami making classes, Tsumami-zaiku classes and I can also guide visitors around the local area. (Nearby there are two famous shrines, as well as Akihabara & Ueno).
What’s special at Wakalture?
Really “REAL” Japan
There are many culture classes for tourists like mine, but I wonder how many of them are licensed. Especially for Calligraphy. *I can’t write their names here. Ask me if you would like to know 😛
This is my licenses. On the right, my license to teach Calligraphy. I’ve been learning traditional Japanese Calligraphy (Shodo) 23 years.
On the left, it’s my license of National Dietician. I learnt Nutriton at Kagawa Nutriton University and have worked as a dietician.
No translators at Wakalture
Using translators could bring misunderstandings sometimes and they convey less information. I want to communicate with visitors directly so that everyone can understand everything clearly. I’m not a native English speaker but I will do my best!!
My main goal is to help visitors to Japan have a memorable time here in Japan:)
Calligraphy class for fun (Beginner) ¥3,500
Advanced class is ¥8,000 (Adult only)
Cooking(Udon noodle) +α class ¥7,000~
For family, these classes are kids price available:)
