    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

I took my family who were visiting me during the winter holiday. My mother, father and brother had never experienced a tea ceremony and they were not disappointed. This was such an authentic experience and the hosts were so friendly and explained everything very clearly, even providing us with an English translation of the basic information. They also provided excellent instructions on how to get to the property and picked us up in their car for the last part of the journey. They also accommodated for one participants inability to sit on the floor and provided a chair. The tea was amazing and the Japanese sweets were delicious. It really was a wonderful experience and one I would recommend to anyone wanted to try a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. Thank you for your wonderful experience.

This intimate ceremony was incredible. we were only 4 people. they picked us up at the station. Ikuyo is a true passionate and very diligent professional. This ceremony was magnificent, full of delicacy and poetry. The cookies were excellent and the tea delicious. We had a magical moment out of time. You made us dream. Thank you again for your hospitality and kindness.

What a special experience. We felt privileged to be able to have a private tea ceremony experience on a home setting. Ikuyo was an incredible host and made us feel very welcome and comfortable to ask questions. She not only shared an insight into the procedure of the tea ceremony but explained about the history and approach to teaching and learning over many years. Very easy location to get to on the train with clear instructions. A very calming way to spend a few hours after the busyness of other parts of Tokyo. A must do for any visitors.

Thank you for a very nice tea ceremony. We especially appreciated the homely atmosphere and the relaxed possibilities to ask questions and talk about both the tea ceremony in specific and Japanese culture in general. The Japanese tea and sweets were delicious.

This was our first time in Japan and we were looking for an authentic Japanese experience with the locals. The tea ceremony with Ikuyo and her husband was perfect. It was a calm and beautiful experience. They even answered all our questions (..and we had many) so patiently. Would highly recommend this experience.
