Experience Details
Yanaka is known for being one of Tokyo’s most traditional districts, among the few that were spared from the bombings of World War II. It’s the home of artisans, beautiful temples, winding lanes, and some of the best restaurants in Tokyo. This quiet district is perfect for those who want to get away from the crowds of the city and stroll around along its many stone staircases and quaint back streets. Visit the local shops where you can purchase one-of-a-kind gifts and souvenirs, or peep into a tea house. Yanaka offers a glimpse of the bygone period of Tokyo and makes you feel like you’re part of history whenever you walk down its lovely streets. For its nostalgic atmosphere, Yanaka is the perfect place to enjoy a Tokyo Tea Ceremony in Traditional Tea Room! Tea is a part of the lives of everyday Japanese people, with Japan producing delicious tea for over a thousand years. During this Tokyo Tea Ceremony experience, you get to witness the beauty of a traditional Tokyo tea ceremony. First, you will have a chance to pick an antique tea bowl, then you’ll watch the tea ceremony being performed by a tea ceremony master. She will serve Japanese sweets with matcha tea. Then after the whole ceremony, it will be your turn to learn how to make proper matcha tea using traditional methods and tools, whisking until the tea sets and acquires the perfect texture and form. Tea ceremonies are known for being serious and traditional, but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. The Tokyo Tea Ceremony in a Traditional Tea Room allows you to enjoy a wonderful time with fellow travelers as you learn the ins and outs of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
