Hi all! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa!
On May 15th, we held our monthly event Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy) Workshop.
We invite volunteer teachers to our hostel, and they teach you how to write your name in kanji (Chinese character).
First, the teacher picks the characters which has the same sound as your name.
Even if it has the same sound, some of the character represents bad meaning.
So the teacher will select the suitable character carefully with dictionary.
After the characters were determined, teacher writes a example first.
Then, it's your turn to try!
You can also bring the teachers' work as well.
Which are you going to display in your house?
Some guests look at the example very carefully and write so slowly, while others write so quick.
It's so interesting that your personality will be shown when you try Japanese calligraphy!
There are more and more events coming up too!
Please check here for further information, and sign up if you're interested^^
* Some of our events are only for Sakura Hotel/Hostel guests and Sakura House residents.
