Itinerary

Guests are welcomed at door and brought into our sofa room, overlooking the front garden. Your personal tea instructor will introduce you to the world of tea, and serve a traditional sweet. The seasonal sweet is provided by one of Kyoto’s finest confectioners.

After learning a little about Matcha and the history of tea, guests are brought into the tearoom. Typically guests sit on the floor, but we have low chairs and tables for those that would prefer it. The tearoom overlooks our beautiful, back garden.

Your tea instructor will perform a tea ceremony and serve you bowls of Matcha to enjoy. For those that want to try their hand at making Matcha, you will have an opportunity to have a short lesson before the end of the session.
