What to Expect

Would you like to try the BEST-quality matcha green tea in Kyoto? There are many kinds of tea in the world, but I use one of the best ones. I special order my matcha green tea directly from a farmer, so that it's always very fresh and keeps the best quality. Don't miss this chance to try it. The tea ceremony experience itself is not only about drinking matcha green tea and eating sweets—there are more important pieces that I will teach you.

“ Authentic and interesting Tea ceremony ”

I would recommend this activity for all people going to Kyoto. The ceremony gave a feeling of being part of the old traditions of Japan. We also had our daughter of two years old with us and Ryokufu had good care of children and made it possible for us to participate.

Ryokufu:

Thank you for visited me to tea ceremony. I had good time your group. I hope you had good time in Japan!
