Artist Anna Ito's home country of Japan is an island country surrounded by the ocean. Her childhood dream was to fly across the ocean and see the world, which she realized. During her travels she saw various kinds of culture and art and met many people who had different common sense, religion, language, accent, and skin color. This experience broadened her outlook remarkably. She discovered that accepting differences without discrimination opens the door to the world; a peaceful world. She teaches students not only Japanese culture / brush calligraphy / language but also a global view of open-mindedness and courage to learn new things without being afraid of making mistakes. Her company, TokyoQT International, is on 10 acre land near beautiful Mississippi River in Clinton Iowa, and it includes an Art & Culture Center and a golf driving range. Visitors can find useful and enjoyable lessons, super cool Japanese art, Lolita Princess style kawaii statement jewelry, and brave Samurai Ninja style Stainless Steel chain necklace.
