Hi, I’m Aya, owner of SAKURA Experience Japanese Culture in Kyoto,Japan.
I was born in Kyoto in 1967 and I still live in the center of town as teacher for various kind of Japanese traditional culture.
I had 3000 or more guests from all over the world since I opened my classroom in the summer 2018.
My husband is a descendant of a large trading family from the Edo period called Ito. His ancestor became the Shogun’s garden advisor and developed the Somei Yoshino variety of cherry blossom which is now the Japanese national flower.
We are pleased to offer classes in Japanese home cooking, and more than 10 other kinds of cultural experience classes. My husband and I hold a number of teaching licences in Tea, Ikebana and Shodō so it’s possible to take all kinds of classes.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

My brother and I enjoyed our tea ceremony with Aya so much! I was a little nervous going into it but Aya made me feel at ease, providing clear and friendly direction. She also shared a lot of interesting history with us as well as recommendations for food and shops in the area. I will be attending another class with Aya in the future when I return to Kyoto! Thank you!!
