    What to Expect

    In this experience you can take part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, try calligraphy and a visit a shrine to deepen your understanding of the Japanese culture and spirit in a short amount of time.
    This experience is the perfect option for busy travelers and it will only take about two hours.

    First, I will show you video of what you will experience.
    Then, you will learn about calligraphy. I will teach you some rules. You can practice as much as you want. You can take calligraphy back.
    Then, you will learn about tea ceremony. I will show you the whole procedure and you will enjoy Japanese sweets and matcha tea. You can whisk tea on your own if you want.
    Lastly, we will visit shrine nearby. I will teach you how to pray. There are rules about how to visit shrine formally so learning how to visit temples and shrine is important . The nearby shrine is small but has history of 550 years.
