Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Kiu (sorry if I misspelled your name) was a fantastic host and wonderful instructor. We had the most beautiful time during the ceremony, and it was THE highlight of our time in Kyoto! Thank you so much for you and everyone that works to make the tea ceremony an experience for the ages. ありがとうございました!

We loved the intimate atmosphere. It was fascinating learning about education the tea master had been through. He made it interactive by having us try to whisk the Macha. We would highly recommend this 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.
