 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.

Keiko was prepared, patient and clear in guiding us through the lesson. She ensured that everyone participated and helped us work together as a team. She anticipated food preferences and offered gluten-free and oil-free options. I look forward to learning more from her in future classes!

My husband and I learned so much in the group class. Cooking together inspired us both to try cooking more at home, to try new ingredients, and to use the old ones in a new way. The instructor, Katy, was great! We would definitely take a class with her again.

Really fun. Nice instructor. Hard enough to leave you with a feeling of accomplishment, easy enough to let you accomplish.
