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.

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!

Couldn't recommend this trip enough. The friendliest staff with incredible English and we learnt so much about the origins of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. We took the option to dress up in the kimono which was well worth it as it made for some of the best photos of our trip.

This was a lovely experience. We dressed up in Kimono's and learnt about a traditional tea ceremony. We experienced the shortened version of the ceremony - approx 30 mins, as the full one is about 4 hours. Our host was lovely and warm, was very particular when dressing us with all the layers, plus does your hair, and then ushered us around the home to get the best pictures for us. Well worth embracing this experience. Unfortunately, you are allocated time, from the day you choose, so book this in first before planning your day.

This was super fun. It was a little bit difficult for my parents, at 66 years old, to do some of the things where we kneeled or stirred our own matcha but for everybody else-- it was pretty easy and the tea master was so sweet. We loved dressing in kimonos and learning about the whole ceremony.

Amazing! The hosts were extremely understanding - even though they didn't have to. We had terrible luck with this event: we had to cancel the ceremony on the day that we had initially agreed to have it due to an accident, and they agreed to postpone to the next day. Next day we ended up coming to the wrong location!! The hosts did not mind it and actually even paid for the taxi for us to get to the right location. The tea master was very pleasant, polite and informative. This is a MUST DO when in Japan, and I could not thank enough to the hosts for being so understanding considering our misfortunes. Thank you again, this has been one of the best highlights of our trip!

This was a truly remarkable experience that I will hold in my heart forever. As a solo traveler, this was beyond my expectations with a wonderful guide meeting me at my hotel and taking me to the beautiful home of the incredibly lovely tea master, and her delightful mother. We had such a wondrous time together, it was like visiting friends from long ago. An experience to be treasured.

I learned a lot about the Japanese Tea Ceremony tradition and was able to make the matcha green tea myself. It was a wonderful experience and it was also great to meet the other guests who were learning the craft as well. Our teachers allowed us to take photos so that we could capture the sacred experience.

My fiance and I very much liked the tea experience. When we arrived, we were taken to separate rooms to select our kimonos and the staff dressed us in them. While we waited for the tea ceremony start time, the staff took some pictures of us. They are some of the best ones we have from our Japan trip! The ceremony itself was very informative and interesting to experience. The women in the group also go tot experience making the tea. If you do this experience, we highly recommend getting dressed in the Kimono's as well.

What a lovely experience! We opted for the Tea Ceremony with Kimono and it was a highlight of our trip. We had a very knowledgable tea master who showed us all the tradition behind the ceremony. The kimonos were beautiful and it was a really lovely way to spend a couple of hours in Kyoto.

The hosts were wonderfully kind and friendly. I learned quite a lot about the traditional tea ceremony and even got the opportunity to make a cup of matcha. I recommend the experience of wearing a kimono.

The tea ceremony was a great expirience. Although having participated in smal events by volunteers before as a student I learned a lot more! It is a nice and welcoming atmosphere an we truly appreciated that we could take part in the ceremony even though we came too late. Therefore there was no time to change into a kimono before the ceremony but to our great relief we could do it afterwards. Thank you very much :

My ten year old son and I went on our first trip to Japan in June 2017. We wanted to experience something authentically Japanese during our stay in Kyoto. The only problem we had, and it is important to mention, is that it was very difficult to find the location. Our googlemaps sent us elsewhere and with very limited Japanese and no cell phone service we had a hard time finding the location. Luckily with the help of a friendly policeman and later, a taxi driver who walked us to the location, we arrived half an hour late. An Italian couple on their honeymoon also had the same trouble as we did as we arrived at the same time quite late for our ceremony. The hostess was very gracious however and the ceremony was amazing. Our hostess explained all of the details of the ceremony in an informative and entertaining manner. Even my 10 year old will never forget what she said and it was definitely an experience to treasure.

We had a fantastic time, it was the highlight of our Japan trip. Our Tea Master Kimmy dressed us in kimono and took plenty of photos on our phones for us. She was very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

I would highly recommend anyone to do this when in Japan. Wearing the kimono made the experience even more amazing!

Maravillosa experiencia. Tomé la opción con kimono e hizo la gran diferencia, Pasar por todo el proceso e historia de vestirse con kimono para luego asistir a la ceremonia del té es bellísimo, logras adentrarte un poco en el mundo de las tradiciones japonesas. Kimi mi anfitriona es un encanto y explica muy bien toda la historia y el proceso. Lo recomiendo mil veces!
