I have nothing to say apart from that the ceremony was absolutely wonderful. The hostess was very friendly, made everybody feel very welcome, spoke very good English and made multiple jokes. She has explained the philosophy and the ritual of tea ceremony, which followed by beautiful performance. We have also gotten to make our own matcha, have been explained how to correctly prepare and drink the tea.
The experience was absolutely beautiful, can not recommend enough especially when visiting a captured capital of matcha :)

I was here by myself, I thought it would be awkward and felt left out, but the host took care of me and the rest of the group very well. I enjoyed every minute of learning sadou with our host, would definitely recommend to my friends and fellow solo-travelers.

This was a fabulous experience with my friends while visiting Kyoto. Wearing the traditional Kimono and learning about the tea ceremony was the highlight of my trip to Japan. Definitely this is a must do experience!

Booked for the tea ceremony whilst wearing kimonos. Had a fantastic time. Our host explained clearly each part of the ceremony and answered all our questions after. It was amazing to see the elegance and precision that comes with the concentration of hosting in this Japanese tradition.
We would highly recommend this to anyone who visits Kyoto and Japan.
Thankyou so much!
