My partner and I attended the two hour tea ceremony session with a tea master. They got us dressed in kimonos and were able to take traditional photos in a zen garden. We then participated in the tea ceremony learning the proper etiquette of servicing and receiving matcha. This was a great experience.

didn't know what to expect, but had and amazing experience with Tea Master Seiko She was wonderfully hilarious. Learned a lot about the customs, culture, and intricate details of making tea properly. Did not know that there was a lot of meaning attributed to a simple task of making tea. From demonstration, to having you experience it yourself. It was a pure highlight of my trip.

Sitting on your knees on a tatami mat is not the most comfortable, but a small price to pay for participating in a tea ceremony. It as fascinating to learn how each movement has meaning and Kaori was beautiful to watch. Take the opportunity like I did to make a cup of tea. Definately worth it.

This tour was absolutely amazing! Seiko-san was very knowledgeable about the history of Tea Ceremony in Japan and we learned a lot! My fiance and I have wanted to go to Japan for a long time and this experience was 100 worthwhile. We were even able to try making our own tea! The entire staff was kind and generous - we felt like we were visiting lifelong friends! I highly suggest this tour to get a taste of real historical Japanese culture to appreciate the society as a whole - it is amazing how much tea ceremonies impacted history and Japanese politics. We plan to go back when we return to Japan in the future!

It was a totally awesome activity. My adult children was quite unimpressed when first hearing about doing this, but when they were immersed in the activity they really enjoyed every aspect of the program. I was impressed by the knowledge and ease in which the instructor was able to communicate with us and how welcoming and helpful the staff was with us. Great program and will plan to do the cooking class when visiting Kyoto again.

We had a fantastic time during the Tea Ceremony with Kimono. I was feeling sick and our host made sure I was comfortable at all times. She spoke fantastic English which made the ceremony even better. It was a great authentic cultural experience which I would recommend to all.

What a lovely way to pass an hour and half learning about the Japanese history of the tea ceremony. Our host was charming and very knowledgeable - we felt we honoured to spend time with her - and loved our kimonos !

This was exactly the experience we were looking for. From dressing in kimonos, to learning about the history and rituals of the tea ceremony, to experiencing the ceremony itself, it was perfect. My daughter stated that this was her favorite part of our entire trip. It was a great way to immerse ourselves in historical and traditional Japanese culture.

The tea ceremony was wonderful. We not only got to experience it, but our teacher took us through the rituals and explanations that really helped explain it and made us appreciate it that much more!
