My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the Wagashi and Matcha workshop yesterday. It was a very special and memorable experience for both of us as it was just the two of us. The owners of this business are very warm and genuine. Thank you so much!

What a lovely experience! Soshin-san was so welcoming and hosted a wonderful private tea ceremony for my friend and I. She went through the process twice allowing us to familiarize ourselves, and then gave us multiple opportunities to make our own matcha. Soshin-san was always friendly and spoke English well to guide us. It was a delightful time and we got good photos and delicious tea. I would definitely recommend booking this experience!

Kaori provided a lovely and thorough demonstration of a traditional tea ceremony, answered all of our questions, and guided us through the process on our own. The google map link provided on booking was helpful for navigation. When we got to the location, within 5 mins ahead of our reservation time as requested in the confirmation no one was at the front and there was a sign on the door instructing to meet across the alley. When we went there we were instructed to go back, so that was a little confusing but all in all, a good experience.

Tea Ceremony in Japan

Dating back to the 8th century, tea was originally introduced to Japan from China. The tea ceremony in Japan is considered to be one of the three main traditional Japanese art forms, sitting proudly alongside calligraphy and ikebana flower arranging. The ritualistic side of the Japanese tea ceremony and the preparation of matcha green tea was introduced by Zen Buddhists in Kyoto. Today, the historical and ceremonial process of preparing matcha is known as "chado" or "the way of tea," and can be enjoyed at tea rooms throughout Japan from Tokyo to Osaka and beyond. Once a beverage enjoyed solely by bureaucrats and elite samurai, Japanese green tea and traditional practices of the Japanese tea ceremony in Japan is now an experience enjoyed by anyone. Typically held in a beautiful Japanese tea room, you can enjoy matcha with traditional wagashi sweets during a Japan tea ceremony where you can even learn how to make matcha yourself with guidance from a master. Relax and enjoy the refinement and tranquility of this unique cultural experience that is deeply rooted in Japan’s history.
