Experience Details

Always been curious about Japanese tea ceremony? Wondering how to make matcha tea the traditional way? The Japanese Tea Ceremony in Asakusa will answer all of your burning questions. In a relaxed and casual environment, you’ll learn all about the wonders of Japanese tea ceremony, the tradition’s rich history, and of course, how to make matcha tea! You will learn proper Japanese tea ceremony etiquette from an expert, along with the dos and don’ts of making the matcha tea. And what goes better with tea than some delicious Japanese sweets? You’ll get a taste of cute Japanese confections during this Japanese tea ceremony experience. Tea culture was first introduced to Japan by the Chinese and was mainly enjoyed by the wealthier class who showed off their extravagant ceramics and knowledge during tea drinking gatherings. Simultaneously, a different type of tea gathering evolved, which focused on simplicity, with roots in Zen Buddhism. The tea ceremony that is practiced today can last several hours, and there are many subtle etiquette rules that you might not notice, if not for insights from an expert tea ceremony instructor.

Inclusions

Insights into the practice of tea ceremony from an expert during a 1-hour session
Tools for Japanese tea ceremony, like whisk and bowls
Matcha green tea
Sweet Japanese confections

Experience Location

Home to the famous Sensoji Temple, a Buddhist temple built in the 7th century, Asakusa overflows with rich history and traditional culture. In the past, Asakusa was Tokyo’s leading entertainment district, a red light district with a number of kabuki theaters. Most of Asakusa was destroyed during World War II, but it has since grown into one of Tokyo's most visited tourist spots. Here, you'll find Nakamise Dori, a bustling shopping street lined with local snack and souvenir shops. Asakusa also has other attractions such as parks, public baths, and museums.
