Editor’s Tip
Takashi Ikezawa is a native of Japan who has dedicated his life to disseminating Japanese arts and culture to the world. His strong identification with Japanese culture stems from four years of experience working as a certified mountain guide on Mt. Fuji – a place that is historical as well as sacred to Japanese people.

Featuring Japanese-inspired works by artists from all over the world, RESOBOX is a Japanese cultural center dedicated to sharing and celebrating Japanese influence in the arts. Our workshops, cafe, gallery and event space allow us to celebrate Japanese culture in many ways.

We offer classes in Japanese-inspired dance, ink painting, cosplay and prop-making, martial arts and more. We also offer drawing, crochet and Karate classes just for kids as well as classes in ink-painting, Iaido and Jodo.

Visitors can enjoy art inspired by Japanese culture in our gallery. Featuring artists from near and far, we display new artwork monthly. We are open to artists of any age, race or nationality, provided that they somehow incorporate Japanese ideas, culture or philosophy into their work through the creation of something that didn’t exist before.

Relax and be inspired, strolling through our gallery or unwinding in our cafe. Enjoy free wifi with a cup of coffee or Matcha, a relaxing Japanese drink, and a sushi roll.

RESOBOX is a place where people who are conversant with, dedicated to, and influenced by Japanese arts can gather to create innovative arts through the collaborative process and disseminate them to the world. Join us!

My son loves this place. He didn't know what Manga Anime was until his first class here. His first drawing (last week) was Pikachu. Apparently, we visited again this week and he drew another male Manga Anime character with fireball powers. We visited the LIC location. There are locations in Manhattan as well. The place is a small Gallery/Japanese Restaurant/Kids Manga Drawing class etc. This week, we enjoyed Japanese noodles right after the class. Yum!

My son really loved this Manga drawing class. He was very quiet and shy at first. After half an hour, he seemed to enjoy the fact that he was able to draw Pikachu straight from an ipad and enjoyed the company with other older kids. He was using the same concept that he does at home but it's even better with the help of an art teacher that could give him better insight and point out missed details. He asked me to book the class for him again. Although, it's quite a ride from Forest Hills to L.I.C. but well worth it for my baby.
