Tea Ceremony Koto/ Kimono & Tea ceremony A1 minute walk from Golden Pavilion. Authentic Tea Ceremony in Kyoto.

The beautiful actress from India, Lakshmi Manchu visited Tea Ceremony Koto!

Hello, I’m a host of Tea Ceremony Koto, just a 1 minute walk from Golden pavilion in Kyoto Japan. I welcome many guests from foreign countries and explain tea ceremony in English.


It was very nice to welcome Lakshmi Manchu, a beautiful actress from India.

She had been on the American TV “Las Vegas” and many movies in India.

It was the first time for me to meet Movie Star!




A Movie Star from India!


Lakshmi Manchu

I have heard it was the first time for her to come to Japan, so tea ceremony was one of the things she wanted to experience in Kyoto. I’m so happy she chose my tea house Koto.

She told me her nick name “Lucky” when I asked. She was really friendly enough even though she is a famous Movie Star!





The private tea ceremony is getting popular lately.



Not only VIP guest like Lakshmi Manch, but also some people who would like to experience the peaceful & calm time or Zen atmosphere only for them choose the private tea ceremony.

Since the sightseeing places like Golden pavilion or Fushimi inari shrine are all crowded usually, so it’ll be the relaxing, comfortable time to experience tea ceremony in a traditional Japanese house.


I was happy to hear that Lakshmi Manchu wants to come in the different season next time when I explained the tea utensils in my tea house changes according to the seasons.

I’m looking forward to seeing her again someday!
