Paint Nature Scene with a Sumi-e Master


Hello, I am a Certified Sumi-e Master and you will have an incredible experience not only drawing Sumi-e at my workshop in my studio, but also discovering the Japanese lifestyle.
I have been a Sumi-e master for over six years. I studied at a horticulture school and at Kyoto University of Art and Design. However, I draw Sumi-e not only with Indian ink but also with color.I would love to share my horticultural Sumi-e world with you.

We will pick you up at Yoga station, about ten minutes from Shibuya via subway, and walk on ‘’Yoga Promenade’’ designed by one of the most famous architectural offices in Japan, ‘’Atelier Zo’’. You will enjoy flowers in the season of plums and cherry-blossoms, hear the sound of the stream, and find the poems from ‘’Hyakunin Isshu’’( Japanese poem cards) at the road.There is a bamboo grove, which I will teach you how to draw. The promenade ends at my studio.
