Major comments from the participants:
Comment from MUA staff:
When the exercise started, the way non Japanese attendees held writing brushes looked awkward.
However, as they proceeded, most of them enjoyed the unique and artistic calligraphy. Japanese participants enjoyed an opportunity to touch on the Japanese traditional culture together with non Japanese people. We are very glad that we could provide a venue where people enjoyed the cross cultural exchange through calligraphy.
