Wakalture×Stranger Things


I had a great opportunity to show Japanese Calligraphy to Stranger Things cast!!
Dastin: Gaten Matarazzo
Lucas: Caleb McLaughlin
Will: Noah Schnapp
Max: Sadie Sink
They were here in Tokyo for the promotion of Stranger Things 3!!
Please check it out:D

It was very challenging for me to do the class in 20 minutes which usually takes at least 60 minutes lol
So I planned to cut all instruction about Japanese letters and Calligraphy tools (left memo about it instead).
On the day, many things happened and we weren’t sure that we would have even 20 minutes!!
So I did my best to make time for practicing as much as possible… then actually they practiced quite a lot!! I thought it would be 2-3 sheets of paper only.
I can see on the video how much they were focused:D It made me happy <3
But I can’t stop thinking that if we had more time!! I could teach them more and they could have improved more and more!! Cos Japanese Calligraphy is not something you could do in 20 minutes lol
They did quite good job though!! All Japanese who were there we were all impressed:)

 
I gave them their names in Japanese since they only practiced their character names!
They seemed happy to see how their names looked like in Japanese:)

Also I wrote Stranger Things in Japanese to show them.
This is it in Japanese! ストレンジャー・シングスー未知の世界ー
Unfortunately, it was edited and you can’t see it on the video,,,;(

With them <3

Calligraphy class to Stranger things kids!!


I had a great opportunity to teach Japanese Calligraphy to the kids who are in Stranger things !!
Gaten, Noah, Caleb and Sadie 🙂

I wrote their name in Japanese and made name tags for them since they only wrote their character name!
I hope they like it;)

It was such a short time so that I couldn’t teach enough:(
I hope they’ve enjoyed some of it and hopefully come back to learn more!!

Moroccan guest

 

First guest from Morocco🇲🇦  He was actually my guide when I visited Morocco in November last year😆✨
Trip to Morocco
In this time, he visited me🙌
He works for Sahara breeze travel and was born in Sahara dessert so he picked this kanji, the first letter of dessert, 砂😉(砂漠 is dessert, 砂 means sand).

 
He also made Udon noodle from scratch!!

Next time when he comes back to Japan, I would like him to teach how to cook Tajin!! 😉

Learning Calligraphy never end!!


At Calligraphy classes, this happens quite often.
Guests say that they can’t do like me.
And I’m like,,, yeah of course😂

This is what I’ve gained spending my 23 years and I’m still learning.
Even though the 23 years, and having a teaching license, I’m still not a perfect at all.
I guess that means I’m able to improve more😁 

So I would cry if my guests wrote calligraphy like me in few hours😭
Though everyone realizes at the end, they’ve improved when they saw the first one they wrote😏👍✨

If you’re interested in Japanese calligraphy (Shodo), Cooking (Udon, Tamagoyaki), Origami or Tsumami-zaiku then please contact me!!
You’ll learn the Traditional Japanese Calligraphy;) I have a license to teach Calligraphy and over 20 years of experiences.

Nathalia a repeat guest:)


Welcome back Nathalia❤❤❤
She came to Wakalture last summer(on the left) then came back for another Calligraphy class(on the right)😆👍

She brought me this Matryoshka😆
I love it!!

She wanted to write happiness, 幸. But I though it was too easy to do at the second Calligraphy class;9 So I suggested her to try 幸福:)
Also with dates in Japanese!!
She did quite well:)

Most of Wakalture guests are tourists but I sometimes have repeat guests😲✨ Much appreciated😭💕💕💕
