Experience Details

One of Japan's most cherished traditions, the centuries-old art of tea ceremony is a mindful expression of hospitality and an enduring testimony of the country's tea heritage. You can be part of this tradition in this traditional tea ceremony in Space Beppu, a centuries-old townhouse in Oita Prefecture. Here, a kimono-clad tea master and expert in Japanese culinary arts will lead you through a traditional tea ceremony. During this experience, you can learn about the Japanese tea ceremony's etiquette, rules, and history. The ceremony will take place in a traditional tatami room, where the master will ceremoniously prepare matcha green tea for you to enjoy with traditional Japanese sweets. An English-speaking interpreter will guide you to ensure smooth communication, and you can also learn to whisk matcha with the master's guidance. Relax, unwind and immerse yourself fully in this fascinating aspect of Japanese culture. Space Beppu, a remodeled 100-year-old townhouse only a few minutes from Beppu Station on foot, provides a serene and traditional environment that makes for the perfect setting to learn about Japanese tea culture and traditions.
