Embrace the Art of Etegami: Sending Original Postcards from Japan to your friend in the world.

  • Learn the art of sumi ink drawing with a brush.

  • Add color with special Japanese paints.

  • You will be guided by professional instructors who will help you create a wonderful work of art that you can take home as a souvenir of your trip.

 Why not try out a new Japanese cultural experience on your trip? ETEGAMI is a combination of the words “E” (Drawing) and “TEGAMI” (Letter). ETEGAMI is a way of sending a message to your family, friends, and yourself. You draw a picture of seasonal things or memories from your destination. By carefully drawing your picture, paying attention to how to hold the brush and how to draw as they instruct you, you will create a wonderful one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. When you add a message, you have finished. Your first piece will be your treasure. Please frame it and display it. Put a stamp on the second one and send it to your loved ones!

 Leave your hotel and take the subway to Kita24jo station.
 Arrive at Stationery Mitsuhashi, where you will experience ETEGAMI.
 We will try ETEGAMI, a new Japanese art form that involves painting with sumi ink and watercolors. We will learn how to use the ink, practice the strokes, draw our own designs, and color them.
 Return to central Sapporo by subway and end the tour.
