What is

What is Shodo JAPAN?
【Why should I learn calligraphy?】
Year after year, a large number of travelers come from overseas to experience Japan, and year after year, we hear the same reaction: “Japanese is so difficult!”
Of course, trying to learn any new language is going to be a huge task, but Japanese has some unique aspects that make it especially hard for overseas visitors.


We sell calligraphy tools!
We stock traditional brushes made in Kumano, Hiroshima and many other goods!
Our products come direct from a calligraphy goods shop established in 1953, so we can provide you with the best tools possible.



Learn calligraphy ONLINE!
Study using tutorial videos presented in natural English and have your works corrected live via Skype.
Instructors will follow your progress every step of the way, so even if it’s your first time picking up a brush, we can help!
