I studied abroad for about 10 years and I always wanted to introduce Japanese culture to foreigners. Now I am working at okeiko Japan in Miyajima from the start of the business, the perfect location to introduce authentic Japanese culture! Even though I am not a native of Miyajima, I love this island. The nature, atmosphare, and people of this island is just wonderful and I want all the world to know about Miyajima. And I have enough English skill to talk about it! The lessons are thought by instructors who are specialized in that field. So you are in good hand.
All the tools shall be prepared by us.
This temple is located in very quiet place away from commercial tourist area. The temple is 300 years old and loved by the islander. The building is renovated, and so do garden. You will love the authentic Japanese style garden. Tea ceremony and calligraphy lessons can be taken everywhere in Japan, but do the lesson in this quiet island is very different from other big cities. The vibe of this island can not be compared by others.
