Koto Culture Salon is the 2nd floor of Tea Ceremony Koto, just a 1 minute walk from Kinkakuji(Golden pavilion). We plan to hold many kinds of Cultural classes such as tea ceremony, Ikebana, kimono wearing, yoga…etc any time.
For the people living in Kyoto get together though cultural classes.
For foreign tourists and Japanese can exchange different cultures each other.
I’ve opened this KOTO Culture Salon.
I welcomed the group of foreign students leaning Japanese in Kyoto on Saturday evening in the best season for red maple leaves.
How to wear kimono? ＠Koto Culture Salon
11 foreign students from France, Malaysia, Thaiwan..etc and 2 Japanese guests learned how to wear kimono by the teachers of Kyoto Kimono gakuin here.
I’ve heard that Kyoto Japanese language school offers the opportunity to learn Japanese cultures once a month like today in addition to learning Japanese in the school. It’s wonderful program I think.
I guess by learning and feeling cultures, foreign students can remember Japanese faster and deeper.
Tea Ceremony Experience wearing Kimono
Since they were the student of Japanese language school, they tried saying greetings in Japanese.
Bowing nicely, we could make the good relationship each other.
At last, they learned how to whisk powdered green tea by their selves.
Just a 1 minute walk from Golden pavilion
If you are the big tour group, you can part in 2 groups and take turns for Kinkakuji temple and tea ceremony since we are just a 1 minute walk from the temple.
I was really happy that we got the greatest score from all the students for this experience.
Kimono & Tea Ceremony, Ikebana & Tea Ceremony, or Japanese meal & Tea Ceremony etc.
We can arrange Japanese cultural experience here.
