The price includes 2  bowls of matcha tea (you can choose from thick tea & light tea) and fresh sweets.

All are made by shops of long standing in Kyoto.

You can experience making tea by yourself in addition to watching the way of tea.

thick tea

Thick tea is typical in tea ceremony, rare to see in Japanese café. The way of tea is a little different from the light one. It’s more elegant and rare to see also.

You can take photos for free. We recommend you to keep tranquil atmosphere during the way of tea, but if you would like to take photos, it’s up to you because it’s private session for your group.

Also in the next waiting room, you can take photos with kimono or Nishijin textiles before or after the tea ceremony experience.

All explanation is given in fluent English by a master of Urasenke, one of the biggest tea schools in Japan. You can make good powdered green tea at home after taking this class.
