Experience Details
Experience first-hand all that makes tea ceremonies a representative of Japan’s hospitality culture, right in the heart of Tokyo! The experience is located in Asakusa, also known as Tokyo’s traditional district. The tea house invites you into a different time entirely, with its tatami mat flooring and beautiful dishware. At the tea house, you will be given a brief introduction to the art and history of the Japanese tea ceremony, and also to how matcha green tea is prepared. The tea ceremony demonstration comes with a beautiful wagashi, a traditional sweet that complements the tea. You will also be given the opportunity to prepare and serve your own matcha! The tea ceremony can be experienced as is, however, for an extra fee, you also have the option to wear a kimono for the ceremony. Walking through the streets of Asakusa in kimono to attend a tea ceremony is a great way to get into the traditional mood!
