We loved this experience so much! Spending the afternoon being beautifully dressed, learning about calligraphy and experiencing the tea ceremony with such kind and wonderful hosts made this day the most memorable of our 3-week vacation in Japan! The location is also very beautiful. We learned so much about Japanese culture. We love that we could take back home our calligraphy artwork and now we are looking forward to the beautiful photos in the garden. I will definitely recommend this experience to anybody traveling to Japan! Thank you so much!!!
My family and I had a great time during our tea ceremony experience! We were given our choice of a traditional Japanese kimono to be dressed in and shown the ways of an authentic tea ceremony. We then were shown how to write our names and a character of our choice in Japanese. The two ladies who run it were very welcoming, knowledgeable and polite. Overall I would highly recommend this and was most definitely a highlight of our trip.
The two hosts were incredibly nice! We could choose our Kimono, got a very interesting lesson on calligraphy and joined a tea ceremony in which we could try and make our own tea. Each step we got many information and explanation. We absolutely recommend to do this workshop! You will get a good feeling of Japanese tradition, it was fun and very informative and interesting!
On arrival we changed into traditional dress. We then had a lovely experience learning the Kanji calligraphy and signing our work - our teacher was very patient. Then the tea ceremony was perfect...we learned the the processes and the significance of the ceremony and made our own tea. Our hosts were amazing and the experience was unforgettable. Thank you so much.
great experience. it took around 2 hours in total, everyone was super friendly and easy to communicate in English (not common in Japan). It is not in the middle of a tourist horde, you can just take your time and relax. Bonus point: island is really great and worth to visit but not much activity to do so visiting the island +
