Nice experience . Place is very near imperial palace . Easy to find.
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.

it was, simply, a spiritual and peaceful experience. The Tea master was very sympathetic with us and showed a great skill on the Tea Ceremony Art
A fantastic experience. It was great to get such an insight into Japanese culture. I would recommend wearing the Kimono too! Great for tea lovers and those interested in Japanese culture. Very friendly staff also.

This was the highlight of our trip. We had a lovely time and it was a very intimate setting. She was very knowledgeable and thorough during the ceremony.
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 !
The tour company offers a very good service value for money. They were very professional and adapted to our special needs. Our Tea Master was very kind and knowledgeable. I recommend it.
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.
Great tour! The host was incredible! Very funny as well! We loved it! Thank you very much!
Sensei Kimi was such a wonderful person! Had the best possible tea ceremony and Kimono experience! Absolutely a must try for everyone who wants to know Japanese culture
We all enjoyed this introduction to the tea ceremony. The host was truely exceptional. We felt truely welcome.
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!
loved this! was a great experience getting dressed up in the kimonos and learning about the Japanese traditional tea ceremony. One of the highlights of the trip. As'ka the host was fantastic!
We had the most wonderful experience. Tokomo was our Tea master. What an absolute beautiful person. From the moment we walked through her door, Tokomo made us feel so welcome and explained everything so beautifully. When I left I felt so at peace. Would highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed. We would like to thank Tokomo for her hospitality and friendship
What an experience, the start was selecting and being dressed in the beautiful Kimono's, my daughter chose a lovely dress and I was given the more formal male style Kimono. The tea ceremony started with a brief history then the demonstration of tea making and what our part was in the acceptance and drinking of the tea. The highlight was we were then allowed to make the tea ourselves. This was a truly authentic Japanese experience and I am so glad we chose it.
If you like Japanese culture and I do, this is a great opportunity to exprience a small portion of that. Great instructors who love what they do. My wife and I went to several more tea ceremony since we like this one so much.
We fell a bit in love with the experiences offered via the Women's Assn. of Kyoto. WAK seeks to share their love of Kyoto and provide hospitality. Our instructor was a delight! She ensured we learned and enjoyed the tea ceremony experience, which was held in a converted home WAK uses for instruction.
