Overview

Enjoy the authentic tea ceremony followed by lunch in a traditional tea house with a beautiful Japanese garden.
There's so much more to tea ceremony than simply enjoying tea with sweets. It captures all the elements of Japanese philosophy - the beauty of imperfection, stillness, and simplicity. Let's enjoy the moment together through this cultural experience.

What to Expect

You'll be invited to the private tea ceremony planned for you. The matcha tea ritual is a bonding experience of mindfulness, respect and a focus on the moment. It will give you a deeper insight of Japanese culture. Enjoy your lunch overlooking a Japanese garden, then witness a beautiful demonstration of the tea ceremony and enjoy a bowl of tea with Japanese confection. You can also have a tea making experience with the tea master. I'll provide information in English throughout the ceremony. After the ceremony, I'll show you an ancient shrine and an observatory to enjoy the view of Tokyo.

Konnichiwa I’m Eriko. I'm passionate about showing people around Tokyo that I call home. Tokyo is truly a city of many faces and has something for everyone from ancient temples, high-tech culture, to quirky themed restaurants.

My great grandfather was a kimono maker in the early 1900's, and I am honored to wear the kimonos that he created. Growing up in a tiny wooden house which used to be a great grandfather's studio in an old town of Tokyo, I came to appreciate Japanese culture. And I'm privilege to share that with many visitors today.

I believe there is no one-size-fits-all travel plan and your itinerary should be as unique as you are. It's rewarding to be a small part of someone's journey broadening their horizons and writing their own story. We embrace the differences and find more things in common. I'm looking forward to being your guide and becoming your first Japanese friend! read more
