The staff was very welcoming and kind, with good English! I came by myself and was provided my own choice of Kimono, as well as a separate pouch for my belongings. I was able to have my picture taken in several spots, such as the garden, and during the tea ceremony. I learned much about Japanese customs that I wasn't even aware of before. I would highly recommend this to anybody visiting!

Amazing! We started with the Kimono tea ceremony and the care and passion by the staff was incredible! I cannot speak highly enough about the fantastic time we had learning and being apart of such a beautiful culture. They truly gave us a wonderful look into the famous tea ceremony tradition and made us feel so special the entire time. Immediately after, we wanted to continue learning about the history of Japan and had a great time with the staff at the ninja museum. They made it so fun to learn and both locations were extremely accommodating for English speakers. We absolutely loved these experiences and are recommending them to all of our friends visiting the area!

This experience was fantastic! It was really cool to have the chance to wear a kimono without the pressure of wearing it out in public. There's a wonderful garden where I had my photo taken. Afterwards I participated in the tea ceremony, learning a lot about its process and history. I even had the chance to practice making my own cup of matcha. Every staff member that I encountered spoke fantastic English and I never felt like I didn't understand what was being said. Highly recommended, especially if you want to ask questions throughout the experience.

I loved the experience. The host spoke English really well and shared a lot of detail about the local customs. The kimono was wonderful quality with many colour choices. I felt like I could ask any questions and the experience made me appreciate Japanese culture even more. Can't wait to be back

Super friendly staff! The host was amazing and was willing to take all the photos I wanted. The tour was worth it to experience getting to wear samurai armour and learn the about the armour itself.
