Wear kimono and enjoy tea ceremony

・Visit the yuzen artists in Hiroshima

The second floor of the building is a atelier of yuzen artists. Yuzen is a Japanese dyeing technique for fabrics with hand-painted patterns and it was first invented in Kyoto. Kimonos made in Kyoto are sent to this workshop to be hand-painted since there are few yuzen artists all over Japan. Through this experience you will appreciate traditional yuzen patterns and vibrant colors.

Itinerary

We offer high-quality, premium kimonos as well as ceremonial yuzen kimonos created by Zuiko.​ ​

Also, we provide yukatas including traditional tie-dyed and Edo style ones and gorgeous Hakata obi-belts.​ ​

Dressing is done by experienced kimono instructors accredited by the Japan Kimono Consulting Association.​ ​

As you dress up in kimono, next, you will have tea ceremony. Through this experience you will learn how to make a cup of green tea and its drinking manners. We use a table and chairs during the ceremony and show you ‘obon-temae’ which means tea is prepared on a round tray. We hope that it will be helpful if you wish to have the tea ceremony at home, probably in western style house.

Our atelier is located in a quiet neighborhood and it takes 15 minutes to walk from Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Come stop by on your visit to this area if time permits between your sightseeing programs.​ ​
