The venue is an authentic tea room with a nijiriguchi (a small entrance with a low back). A tea ceremony teacher will carefully teach you how to make tea, so don’t worry even if you are the first timer. Normally, there is no chance to meet geishas, but the plan offers not only meeting them but even making tea for you!
This is a great way for parents and children to experience the tea ceremony together, or for a girls’ night out. You will feel the spirit of hospitality and feminine manners from the geisha.
After the experience, you can shop for tea utensils with advice from the staff, so you can make tea at home.
If you want to experience a tea ceremony, learn the Japanese culture again, or interact with geisha, don’t miss this tour!
