I offer tea ceremony experiences very close to the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji), one of the World Cultural Heritage Sites in Kyoto! The Japanese tea ceremony is said to be a "comprehensive art including the art of the spiritual exchange between the host and the guests, tea utensils, flower arrangement, calligraphy, spiritual discipline and more". It is one of the traditional criteria for beauty and elegance in Japan. I welcome the guests from all over the world! Let's enjoy this moment together and have a bowl of tea!

    Enjoy a Tea Ceremony with Special Sweets in Kyoto This tea ceremony was a wonderful experience that I'm very glad I was able to have for my first visit to Japan. The hostess was very knowledgeable in the way of tea, and very accommodating. Due to an accident I had many years ago I cannot sit in the traditional kneeling Style, so she was kind enough to get me a chair you can also rent kimonos from her for an extra $30 to make the experience even greater

    Enjoy a Tea Ceremony with Special Sweets in Kyoto My husband and I had our Tea Ceremony in June 2016. This was one of the highlights of our trip! The precision and thought that goes into every element was fantastic, from the cups to the tea itself. Rie was absolutely wonderful. She thoroughly explained everything as well as answering all of our questions, really letting us learn about the whole event. We went after the Golden Temple nearby (literally a block away) and it made for the perfect day. I recommend wearing comfortable clothes, as you will be seated on the floor. We also happened to be there on a day that our hostess was being interviewed for the Kyoto paper, and we were all featured in it! Choose this tea ceremony and you won't regret it.

    Enjoy a Tea Ceremony with Special Sweets in Kyoto My boyfriend and I attended the ceremony at Rie's today. She took the time to explain the history of tea in Japan, the history of tea ceremony, the different types of tea ceremonies, and more! The ambience was also great, and the convenient location (literally right in front of the beautiful Kinkaku-ji) was also a plus! I'd recommend this experience to anyone who would like to experience Japanese tea ceremony with a knowledgeable, kind host.

    Enjoy a Tea Ceremony with Special Sweets in Kyoto Very interesting experience and Rie was a good teacher, very patient and kind. We could tell it was going to be very well done as soon as she showed is into the house and Rie very carefully explained everything to know about the Tea Ceremony & it's importance. Locationwise, it is very good as well, just barely down the road from Kinkakuji.
