It was really worth !

Very friendly, cool, and yet very professional teacher.
As I was alone on that course, my wife (who is japanese) was also welcome to stay and join the course.
We learnt many things about the history of Sumi-e, while we were practicing.
The teacher has a lot of humour. It was a very good experience, and a good combination between fun and concentration.
I really recommand, not only to beginners.
Arigato gozaimasu !

Yuta was a very kind, very patient and very interesting person to meet.
Through painting he taught us the symbolism of Japan. The time flew by so quickly that I can back for a second time.
Sumie is a craft that I will bring back with me home.i will continue to draw and practice the techniques you showed. I am very grateful for this experience

Fun, Practical and Relaxing Introduction to Sumie

Reviewed by: Aaron Eames, 2016/08/28

The location is close to the station, maybe three minutes from the nearest exit, and the shop itself is easy to find being on the main road. The session itself takes place in the shop/atelier, the walls lined with sumie works on general sale. In the lesson I learnt a little about sumie history, techniques and styles. The instructor speaks English well and is friendly and patient. I painted five small pieces following his example which featured bamboo, Mt. Fuji and cherry blossoms and was able to take my attempts home. He gave me good advice and directions to a washi (Japanese paper) store after the session. I recommend the experience to anyone interested in sumie and wanting to give it a try!

Really fun!

I am not at all artistic, but even I was able to make pretty ink paintings! The teacher was really nice and funny, and the class was the perfect length. He showed me how to do landscapes, which was cool.
