This was an amazing experience for our family of 5. Being able to dress up in a kimono was very special and the ladies really took their time to ensure that my daughters got to choose the exact one they wanted as well as doing their hair with various hair pieces.
Our tea master, Seiko, was really lovely. Our whole family enjoyed watching her and she explained everything along the way so that we all understood the significance of each step. We were made to feel so welcome and it felt like we were having tea with our Japanese Grandmother.
Would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Kyoto.
This was such a great experience. The hosts were fabulous and we learned a lot! I highly recommend spending the time to learn about Japanese tea ceremony traditions!

magical experience. they offer you a Seat since americans might not wanna kneel but i recommend kneeling the whole time for the actual experience! my tea master was AMAZING. highlight of trip
This was an authentic and very special experience. We enjoyed every moment and booked a calligraphy lesson with them for the next day.
I have participated in this tea ceremony with WAC 2 times now because it was so good the first time, I couldn't wait to bring my son the following year to it. Even though they were going through renovations last year, the ladies at WAC were so warm and hospitable, spending time to get both my son and I into beautifully authentic kimono before the ceremony. I won't forget our time, learning how to make tea with such respect and grace, and watching my son perfect something he never thought he would do in his young life. It was money-can't-buy day, and I cannot thank the ladies at WAC enough for such lasting beautiful memories. Go and meet them, and be immersed in the authentic Japanese art of tea-making, that is quintessential Japan.
I attended the tea ceremony there with some friends and it was a very delighted experience. Each of us wore a kimono that we chose between many. After giving us the time to take several pictures in a dedicate room, we attended the tea ceremony itself where the tea master explained to us about the history and the ritual of the tea ceremony. A very interesting and fascinating experience.
I loved this tour on our trip to Japan. It was a fantastic experience, getting fitted into kimonos and enjoying the rituals of the tea ceremony. It was so interesting and informative. The ladies who taught us were so friendly and it felt very special to learn about this custom in Japan.
Excellent activity to do. Easy to understand and lovely people. Had a great time. Would highly recommend.
This tea ceremony was perfect for learning about old Japanese traditions! It gave us a peak inside the history of Japan and the importance of tea in that history! Our guide was so sweet and knew all about matcha green tea. In this ceremony we learned my favorite saying of my whole trip: Ichigo Ichie
My sister and I choose the option with a Kimono. If you have the time, I definitely recommend this adding that option to this experience. It was fantastic to learn about the Tea Ceremony and experience it while wearing traditional clothes. Also, our host was a very gracious, beautiful and talented host. She made the Tea Ceremony into a work of art. I highly recommend this experience!
