Overview

【Please make a RESERVATION before you come!!!】 Our service will make your name in Kanji, or Japanese alphabet, and write it in Shodo, or Japanese calligraphy. There are many Kanji-s that are pronounced the same, but each Kanji has a different meaning. We will choose a Kanji that suits you the most, after asking you some questions about your personality. Many of our customers use their Kanji name after they go back to their countries, because the name is an unique, special one, created just for them. You can see the details of our service and make a reservation on our website. We are looking forward to seeing you!!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.

a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
