Best tour of the three I took. The ladies were lovely and dressed the three of us with care and patience. We enjoyed the tea ceremony and the sake factory tour as well. Only problem was finding the initial house to start the tour. We went around in circles looking for it.

Tourist friendly introduction into wearing the Kimono, Tea ceremony, and Sake. We were interviewed at the tour by Japanese TV! The house was authentic old Japanese style and the guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. Good for adults and kids alike.

This was a delightful experience. Many thanks! It was just the two of us and a most helpful and kind guide who expertly dressed us in kimonos, took us through a tea ceremony, and then after we returned to our regular clothes visited the sake brewery around the corner. Our guide answered all of our questions about the tour itself and also more general questions about Kyoto/Japan. Each aspect was fascinating and it was just the right amount of time spent, so we were able to participate in this tour in the morning on our first day in Kyoto and then had the rest of the day to explore/do whatever we desired. Great introduction and we highly recommend to all!

Being dressed in a kimono for the tea ceremony by the leaders was an interesting and involving experience. There was one other couple participating with us in the ceremony and in the house tour which added to the experience. This was our first time in Kyoto and we were a bit apprehensive about finding the location of the event. However, the directions were good even though we could not read street names which were in Japanese..

I did not make it because even though I got an email saying confirmed, when I check the email for the details the night before, I discovered that I needed to confirm separately with the local tour operator 24 hours in advance! I would suggest you change your procedure and do not send an email saying confirmed when it is clearly not! Money wasted!
