 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.

RESOBOX is the name created from a mashup of the words Resonate and Box. This Resonating Box envisions a space where artists can meet and collaborate to create new and innovative arts. The space within this Box Resonates, too, shaking up everything inside.

The concept of RESOBOX was originally created in August 2009 as a personal art project by Fumio Tashiro – New York composer, bassist and videographer. 

We offer classes in Japanese-inspired dance, ink painting, cosplay and prop-making, martial arts and more. With drawing and dance classes just for kids and classes in Karate, Iaido and Jodo, we have something for everyone.

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.

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!



Accessibility: The Long Island City location is fully wheelchair accessible.

I started having technical difficulties and had to leave and couldn’t log back on but I thought the instructor did a fantastic job. I was able to put together an arrangement I was happy with based on the instruction and feel like I could do it again. I definitely recommend the class. I loved getting the philosophy behind the arrangements.

Ryoko was a wonderful teacher. I am new to Ikebana, but learned the basics to the art form. Ikebana takes a lot of practice, but I felt this was a good introduction. It was a lot of fun and I'm so glad I signed up.

This class was really fun! The teacher did a great job individualizing the instruction based on the needs of the students, who all had different flowers and containers. I was happy with the 2 arrangements I was able to make during the class and feel I learned skills that I can apply in the future.
