Noriko is a very nice and friendly person with a lot of knowledge about wearing kimono, Japanese history in wearing kimono. She has many very beautiful and special kimonos and obi’s to choose from. While she’s dressing you in the kimono she explains everything you need to know about the history of wearing a kimono. And you can ask all the questions you have.
It’s a fun and wonderful experience with a SUPER host!
Who’s s great photographer as well
Thank you Noriko!

Noriko is a kind and interesting host. She talks a lot and laugh a lot, which make us friends immediately.
We enjoy a formal tea ceremony with delicate Japanese sweet, full of seasonal flavor.
Then Noriko helped me do make-up and wear a beautiful "kimono". Suddenly I became an elegant Japanese lady and can't stop taking pictures of all poses.
Then we had a wonderful Japanese style meal, all made by great chef Noriko.
Listening to her introductions and stories, we really had a deep dive into Japanese culture and history. This is definitely the most local way to do travel in Tokyo! Just make a reservation and build exotic memory of your own!

What a fun day! Noriko was such a delightful and lovely hostess. She is so knowledgeable about many aspects of Japanese culture.

The meal she made was delicious, and such a treat to watch. And Noriko is highly trained in the art of tea ceremony. That was a unique taste of Japan! And everything is so beautifully presented.

I loved getting to try my hand at learning to play the koto. It was was definitely challenging, but so interesting.

The highlight was being able to try on a beautiful, silk kimono, and imagine life in old Japan!

This was not only a great chance to learn and experience traditional Japanese culture. It was also chance to spend time with our lovely hostess Noriko, in her own home. There was plenty of time to ask and discuss our many questions!

An impressive, unforgettable experience!

外国の方だけでなく、日本人にもおすすめです。
近代的な日本だけでなく古き良き時代の日本を感じ取れると思います。
It is a person who can feel Japanese hospitality "おもてなし(Omotenasi)" and Japanese culture.
As well as looking at modern Japan, I think you can also feel the good old days of Japan.

In a truly wonderful Japanese space, the wonderful owner taught us the essence of Japanese culture.
We experienced the tea ceremony with matcha green tea and beautiful Japanese sweets. After a relaxing time, we were taught how to play the koto.
It was my first time playing, but there was no need to worry as owner Noriko gently taught me.
This is a Japanese cultural experience that is very accessible from Shin-Urayasu Station, and I hope people from all over the world will experience it too.

I had a really fun time.
It was a lovely Japanese-style home that made me feel like I was in Kyoto, and it was a great memory to try on a kimono.
Noriko is a friendly person who is always laughing. It seems like Noriko has a lot more going for her! I'd love to experience this again!

I experienced Japanese culture at the owner, Noriko's, home. As soon as I opened the front door, I was drawn into the Japanese space, drawn in by the interior decoration with family crests and Japanese goods, and drawn in by the owner, Noriko's bright and gentle teachings, where she taught me tea and the koto.
I would love to bring my overseas friends here when they come to Japan.

My husband and I had never had tea with the proper etiquette before, so we went there to try out a tea ceremony.
Our teacher, Noriko, was cheerful and explained everything to us from start to finish, which made for a relaxed experience.
She also taught us how to play the koto, even though we're not very good at instruments, and by the end we were able to play Sakura.
It was really nice to have Noriko teach us our first tea ceremony and koto experience.

We enjoyed the wonderful Japanese atmosphere while the owner, Noriko, taught us the proper tea ceremony etiquette. She explained the meaning of each step in an easy-to-understand and enjoyable way.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos, but there was wonderful Japanese interior design everywhere, from the entrance to the room and inside the room.
Thank you Noriko for your wonderful hospitality. I look forward to seeing you again.
