We will start with molding soft "nerikiri" dough into seasonal flower shape
because generally we get a sense of the season in tea ceremony.
And your hand-made nerikiri is served with Kyoto's traditional dry confectionery.
And then we'll move to tea ceremony.
First Terumi will serve a bowl of matcha to each guest in a basic way
of authentic tea ceremony.
And next is your turn!!
Please try making another bowl of matcha by yourself using tea tools.
If you have difficulties in sitting on your knees, we have chairs for tatami.

Wonderful Tea Ceremony with Terumi at her home. We made traditional Japanese sweets followed by the tea ceremony held in a traditional Japanese room. Terumi explained the history and the steps involved in the tea ceremony . We thoroughly enjoyed this must do Japanese experience. Thanks Terumi for a lovely, informative morning.
Thanks again Terumi! It was a great experience and insight in Japanese culture and philosophy.

Terumi is a warm host and clear with her instructions. Communication leading up to the class was also easy and prompt. It was a fun and lovely afternoon learning about new cultures :)

I enjoyed a few wonderful hours with Terumi san. She is a caring and intelligent instructor who made me feel comfortable. She has an abundance of knowledge on Japanese food, sweets and the tea ceremony. Not only does she have the technical skill to help you make delicious food, but she also deeply understands the philosophy of wa shoku and the tea ceremony. Terumi picked me up from the station (I accidentally went to the wrong one!) Terumi also went the extra mile in preparing an addition of food for our lunch, which we shared with her wonderful Aunt. I was so full! There was a genuine feeling of love and gratitude at the table. Terumi and I made nerikiri (a type of Japanese sweet) which wasnt as hard as it looks! The tea ceremony was a beautiful process and I felt the added level of instruction (I was asked to have a go!) helped me to more fully understand the practice. I thought a tea ceremony would be quite austere, but thankfully this was fun. Terumi had all the photos of our day uploaded really quickly in a shared folder. She even took me out to a local shop so I could buy a souvenir of our day. What a wonderful experience; I can't wait to do it again!
