Fantastic calligraphy and tea ceremony in a traditional house. The hosts were very friendly and informative with good english, and they will frame your calligraphy for you as a free souvenir. Definitely recommend if you are travelling to Nagoya.

Yuzo and Kumi are so welcoming into their traditional Japanese home. I really enjoyed the experience of the calligraphy and tea ceremony. They are very patient and great teachers! They even ordered us a taxi back to our hotel when the session was over. Would recommend giving them a visit to anyone in the Nagoya area looking to have a snippet of Japanese culture.

With an extensive knowledge of Japan and many different tea ceremonies attended we can simply state that a tea ceremony here is a highlight! Done with such respect and clear instructions it is a great way to learn more about the complex tea ceremony and to experience it in all tranquility.

The ancient wooden house breathes authenticity and the owners who set up this business take care of it as well as the customers with the utmost respect.

The calligraphy workshop is an excellent way to learn more about its history and the technique behind. You will never look at a Japanese scroll again in the same way after this workshop!

The hosts are very kind and welcoming and excellent in what they do. We can highly recommend this combined workshop far away from the touristy ones you will find in Kyoto.

We had a fabulous time! The historical overview was very well done and provided clear context. Calligraphy is much harder to do but our teacher was very patient. The tea ceremony that followed was exquisite. We even had a chance to try our skills at whisking the tea…not as easy as it looks.

We had an amazing experience and would absolutely recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about Japanese culture. Our hosts were wonderful and made us feel very comfortable during our visit, they were also happy to answer any questions we had, and we learned a lot! The tea ceremony was performed with skill and grace, and we got better with the excellent instruction from our calligraphy teacher. The house is also really beautiful, what a perfect setting! We are so grateful we booked thi

The hosts were absolutely amazing! So welcoming and so nice! We learned a lot about the history of Japan, the ancient tea ceremony and the meaning behind it. And what it means and the step by step ritual they do. And the calligraphy was totally amazing and so much harder than it looks but absolutely so peaceful.

An unforgettable experience, recommended for those looking for something more genuine and less touristy.
Yuzo-san and Kumiko-san were wonderful hosts. Two and a half hours flew by. Yuzo-san was a kind and patient calligraphy teacher. The tea ceremony conducted by Kumiko-san was above all expectations. Elegance and precision in every movement. The whole thing takes place inside a traditional Japanese house. One has the impression of being transported to another era. If you are in the area, I highly recommend this experience.

access to chonoya is relatively simple because in the description it is well explained. there is a very warm welcome with yuzo and kumiko-san. They are very nice and their explanations are very understandable even in English. I loved spending my time with them. They take you to another world with the traditions of Japanese culture: calligraphy and tea ceremony. there is an explanation with the history of japan which is really interesting. During the calligraphy class, they teach you step by step how to use the brush. For my first experience, I think I did well, even if it was difficult because you have to concentrate to do the lines well and center well. calligraphy is not just lines but it is a part of you. for the tea ceremony, it's very calm and every gesture counts. I recommend this activity to everyone.
