Real Authentic Tea Ceremony, for beginners with a guide.
- - - - -
Japanese traditional way of tea with the essence of simplicity is stylized from the spirit of Zen, developed in Kyoto, in Samurai age more than 400 yrs ago. Just serving matcha tea became a kind of spiritual discipline and an art form.
We hold hands-on classes to give the opportunity for people who don't have knowledge can enjoy the tea ceremony.
You can enjoy the traditional culture by being as real guests, eating traditional sweets and drinking Matcha, feel the mindfulness and the atmosphere of the hospitality in unique style.
Visit us and enjoy the experience of tea ceremony in a hide-out tea-room near Ginkaku-ji temple in Kyoto.
