Tea Ceremony Experience with English Speaking Instructor

合計時間 : 1.5 hours

What To Expect

Join this 1.5 hour traditional Japanese tea ceremony experience to try your hand at making matcha green tea and savor it with delicious wagashi sweets at a private teahouse filled with a traditional atmosphere. Learn the history and etiquette of tea ceremony in depth from a friendly and dedicated instructor who is fluent in English. If you are looking to take time to appreciate the beauty of Japanese culture in a private, relaxed atmosphere, this is a perfect experience for you.

I'm an instructor of the Omotesenke school of tea ceremony. I quit my job at a major electronics company and went to Australia to study English. After coming back to Japan, I worked as an English teacher before landing a job at a publisher of language educational materials. Since then, I have been involved in a number of language education projects targeting both individuals and entities. While studying abroad, I renewed my appreciation of my own country and started to actively expose myself to traditional Japanese culture, which led me to become fascinated by Sado, the art of tea ceremony. I trained vigorously to become a certified instructor of the Omotesenke school of tea ceremony, and opened a teahouse called “Jikyu-an” with an aim to introduce many people to the rich world of Sado that best represents Japanese culture and arts. Today, I'm making it my mission to teach international visitors the etiquette of Sado and show them the beauty of the time-honored tradition through classes held at my teahouse as well as Japanese language schools.
