Experience Details
The tea ceremony has been an integral part of Japanese culture since its rise in Japan during the early 13th century. But the history of tea began long before Zen Buddhism made the tradition mainstream. Although the art of tea is no longer an activity solely for the elite, the ritual and peaceful nature of a tea ceremony is still enjoyed throughout Japan today, with matcha popularly consumed throughout the country. A moment of bliss away from crazy city life, a tea ceremony is relaxing and peacefully immersive. Methods for practicing the way of tea were split into three schools of ideology back in its heyday, with omotesenke being one of the major schools. Learn about one of the three major ways to serve tea in-depth during a beautiful Omotesenke Tea Ceremony in Tokyo. In an atmospheric omotesenke tea ceremony room, you’ll learn about the ingredients and equipment used to conduct a special omotesenke tea ceremony. Your experienced teacher will guide you through the meaning of gestures and the history of the authentic tea ritual, teaching you how to serve it (and help you to take some incredible photos!) Join a Omotesenke Tea Ceremony in Tokyo for an unforgettable encounter with Japanese tea culture, and immerse yourself in the wonders of tea during this cultural omotesenke tea ceremony on your next visit to Japan.
