新年会

Born and raised in Kyoto (1986). Graduated from Doshisha University in 2009. Learning tea ceremony when she was working for a bank for 5 years, she found the tea room was the best place to feel relax with varieties of Japanese art & cultures. Since she would like to share this experience with everybody including foreign tourists,  Established Tea Ceremony KOTO in September 2015.

A specialist for lecturing tea ceremony in English.

 

 Mission

Make you feel Japanese culture in 5 senses through tea ceremony.

 

The best tea ceremony for you

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We will explain the meanings of each tea utensil or movement, which changes according to the season (every month!).

If you would like to see the casual show or just whisking matcha tea by yourself, we don’t recommend you to come here.

It’s the best place for you if you would like to know the authentic Japanese culture.

  • The tea ceremony experience we offer is not just watching the demonstration, but also you can join the authentic tea ceremony as a guest. In addition, you can try making green tea by yourselves!
  • Our tea ceremony changes according to the season. Not 4 seasons, but every month. It’s the authentic way we Japanese have loved and described in the important literatures since Heian period (794-1192)
