This tea ceremony was brilliant. Loved the kimonos, and there were so many options to choose from. We had plenty of time to take photos, and loved the entire experience of it!

We had a very interesting time learning about the intricacies of the Japanese tea ceremony, and the varieties of tea and when they are used. We dressed in authentic kimonos that we picked from a selection of colours and were not surprised they cost so much, the quality of the materials was outstanding. My wife had her hair put up and fixed with Japanese accessories. The location in Kyoto was easy to access from the efficient Japanese railway. We traveled from Osaka port in just over an hour. We tasted the tea after reciting the appropriate blessings in Japanese and were given some green tea to leave with. An excellent Japanese experience and well worth the money.

Best thing we did in Kyoto! Such an amazing experience. The Tea Master was so informative and welcoming to us, and the Kimonos were absolutely gorgeous! Definitely would recommend anyone visiting to do this.

The hosts are wonderful!! The tea master and her staff treated us very kindly. I mentioned that we were there for our honeymoon and the three of them went above and beyond to make the tea ceremony something extra special. They dressed us up in their formal style kimono wear and took the extra step to do my hair and obi in a bridal style. They took many photos of us and let us use the tea tools to make matcha tea for each other. They are very knowledgeable and answered all of the questions we had about the tea ceremony and its history.

I highly recommend booking this tea ceremony for anyone who wants a unique experience with wonderful people. They truly made our day.

Prior to the excursion, Caren was very helpful in giving us instructions via email on how to get there. We ended up taking a taxi to the location where Caren and her aide Mrs. Tanaka dressed my granddaughter and me in kimonos. It's quite a production! They did not have a huge selection of kimonos but we found some that we liked. There were so friendly and even fixed my grandddaughter's hair. Once fully outfitted in kimonos, white socks, shoes/clogs & purses to hold our important items, they took photos of us. Caren led us a few blocks to the Kinkakuji temple where she explained different areas. We strolled through the gardens and took more photos at the Golden Pavilion and other scenic areas. After returning to the restaurant, we changed and were treated to a wonderful Japanese lunch in a traditional teahouse setting. Very lovely experience - highly recommend this. The place is very close to bus stops where you can take a city bus of get on the City Sky Hop bus.
