 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.

Never got to experience the class because when I arrived at my booked time, I was told there was no class at that time. Giving 2 stars because the two men helping me were nice and eager to help and apologetic about this.

My daughter loves this class Because the instructor doesn’t try to change her drawing style. He gives her tips on how to draw better and also points out other artists that draw alike. She loves it

Take their time to help develop a simple method for the kids to understand how to create their Anime character and the drawings are based on what each kid likes individually, So I thought that was pretty cool...It was a great class , going back for more.
