The modern Ginza area in Tokyo is known for its high street fashion and glittering neon lights, but tucked away in amongst the towering buildings you can find pockets of tradition. This includes a humble tea house where you can enjoy a traditional tea ceremony in Ginza.
The Japanese tea ceremony is considered to be an important part of Japanese culture and hospitality, combining traditional aesthetics and ritual with matcha green tea. Away from the busy city streets, you can enjoy a moment of calm and thoughtfulness during this tea ceremony experience near the traditional Kabukiza theatre district.
Appropriate for both children and adults alike, you can take time to enjoy this green tea experience. You can learn about the history of Japanese tea ceremony in a short introductory lecture. You will then participate in a demonstration by your experienced tea ceremony instructor. Next, enjoy your matcha with traditional Japanese wagashi sweets to balance out the bitterness of the tea. This experience offers the opportunity for you to then practice serving the tea for yourself.
Upon resuming business, we will continue to thoroughly implement measures to prevent the spread of infection and make every possible effort to ensure the safety and security of our guests and staff.
