A private tea ceremony in a traditional tea house with a beautiful garden


The authentic tea ceremony will take place in a traditional tea house with a beautiful Japanese garden.
There's so much more to tea ceremony than simply drinking tea. It captures all the elements of Japanese philosophy - the beauty of imperfection, stillness, and simplicity. Let's enjoy the moment together through this cultural experience. It will give you a deeper insight into Japanese culture.

Enjoy your lunch overlooking a Japanese garden, then witness a beautiful demonstration of the tea ceremony and enjoy a bowl of tea with Japanese confection. You can also have a tea making experience with the tea master. I'll provide information in English throughout the ceremony. After the ceremony, I'll show you an ancient shrine in the area and an observatory to enjoy the view of Tokyo.
