 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.

RESOBOX's virtual sushi class taught by Belmonte Hiroyo was amazing. All the instructions from the ingredient list and Zoom connection to the set up were really easy to follow. The class itself was really interesting, fun and simple - including all the basics that any first-time sushi makers would need to know. Belmonte was patient and knowledgable, answering any questions we had no matter how random they were. She was full of helpful tips and insight that will set us up for success on our next sushi adventure. I highly recommend taking this class to anyone who is a sushi lover and aspires to roll their own. We are in California so took the class at 8 am PT, I think it would be great if they had ones later in the day too - but honestly, sushi for breakfast was pretty delicious!

Loved it! There was a great balance of theory and practice. I was introduced to some of the deep thought that informs Ikebana. I loved the ease with which the session was organised. The teacher was very encouraging and helped me very thoughtfully. The time passed so quickly, so I guess, I must have had alot of fun! Would love to take more courses and learn further. Thankyou!
