The tea was good and atmosphere was relaxing, but the amount of tea you get for the amount of money you spend is a little unbalanced (i.e. it is definitely pricey and maybe oriented to really, REALLY serious tea drinkers). On the bright side, it...More

Tip #1: Make a reservation before you go since there are limited seatings Best tea experience my wife and I had in Japan. Awesome attention to detail from the selection of tea, to the pouring of water into the tea leaves. The whole experience was...More

I’ve been wanting to do the Sakurai Tea Tasting Course for some time, and having a tea-loving guest in town recently was the perfect opportunity. Tucked away on the 5th floor of the Spiral Building (multi-purpose cultural and shopping centre with a philosophy of ‘fusion...More

As tea lovers we couldn’t miss this experience. The tea store is nice and minimal designed. We made a reservation in advance which is required I guess. The female tea specialist was friendly but businesslike. Very focused on what she was doing. It’s beautiful to...More

Looooooooove that place. It’s just too good to be true. Now the menu we had was close to 40€ (4800¥), so you’d better like your teas to go there. But if you are a tea lover like we are, you’ll love it. First things first,...More

Wonderful experience and one that didn’t feel touristy at all. Next door to the tea shop are a few women run businesses, including a cafe and artisan stores. The “sweets” that come with the tea were lovely and thankfully not too sweet.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
