Hi!, my name is Wakana.
I have set-up the Wakalture Experience as I want to teach Japanese culture in a fun way to visitors of Japan.
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 and experienced. Especially for Calligraphy.
This is my licenses. On the right, my license to teach Calligraphy. I’ve been learning traditional Japanese Calligraphy (Shodo) 28 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!!
Private class only
I would like you to relax like you’re visiting your family or friend:)
Also I love to talk to my guests!! So all classes are private (maximum is usually 6 people).
My main goal is to help visitors to Japan have a memorable time here in Japan:)
