Hi! I'm Kazuko.

I used to feel like an busy person (housewife and mother), but once I entered the tea room wearing Kimono, I spontaneously rediscovered the female elegance inside me. Enjoy the Japanese tea ceremony tradition with me. I'm looking forward to welcoming you!

    Beautiful, playful and delicious!

    I thought a tea ceremony sounded a little up tight when I planned it and wasn't sure what to expect about wearing someone's kimono, BUT I was so wrong and it turned out of be one of my favorite memories! The bonsai museum is beautiful and our host immediately made us feel so welcome, she was very very sweet and brought us into a dressing room where we got to pick our outfits. She dressed me in front of a mirror in a orange silk kimono with a green and silk corset belt, I LOOKED AMAZING and it was SO FUN, then she put a really cool outfit on my husband and let us walk around in the bonsai gardens for a really long time and take tons of fun photos!! Then the tea ceremony started and we sat in a little traditional tatami mat house and she boiled water and made matcha and showed us how to drink it out of pretty bowls. LOVED IT SO MUCH!!
