Tour Report – Green Tea and Wagashi Delights in Tokyo


  We welcomed two American ladies from Missouri today. They are both colleagues and friends. They especially enjoyed trying their own hand at preparing a bowl of matcha tea for each other at the end of the tea ceremony. “Terrible!” They joked at each other’s tea while still finishing their entire bowls. Their thoughtfulness in both preparing and enjoying the tea with each other embodied the spirit of the tea ceremony and left a warm impression on us.   If you are interested in this post, please check below!

Our tea ceremony plan was purchased as a gift to colleagues! The guest today, an expat in Japan, purchased our plan to welcome her colleagues visiting from Chicago. She wanted to give them the best experience possible as their visit here was the first time. We felt honored that she chose our plan for such purpose. They requested for a thorough tea ceremony experience with an attention to detail just any Japanese students would get. We were very impressed by their keen observations, insightful questions, and how quickly they picked up the essence of the principle. They said they were […]

We were proud to welcome a group of guests from the US and Japan to our newly constructed tea house in Toritsudai yesterday. Crawling into the tea room through a tiny entrance space as well as sitting upright straight in Japanese way must have been a bit of a challenge for our foreign guests. However, we were very impressed by how they challenged it and succeeded with big smiles! Luckily, the sun was coming out by the time we saw the guests off in the afternoon.   If you are interested in this post, please check below! Green Tea and […]

Cherry trees are getting ready to bloom very soon. In a couple of weeks, we’ll be enjoying the flowers along the park that leads us to our tea instructor’s house in Toritsudaigaku. We had a mother and two daughters at our casual tea ceremony workshop today. They are from Salt Lake City, Utah (USA). The daughters tried sitting in the Japanese formal way, which even we Japanese have hard time doing. The sweets were in the shape of cherry blossoms and there was a hint of Spring at every corner of the room. Thank you ladies for your interest and […]

  It is still cold but there is a hint of spring in the air. We had two couples at our tea ceremony workshop yesterday at Toritsu-daigaku. One couple is from India and another from Italy. The tea bowls, utensils and the setup of the tea room had the theme of spring. Some of the tea bowls had motifs of the girls festival “hinamatsuri”. They did amazing job in preparing matcha tea themselves although it was their first time doing so. It was fun visiting Japanese sweets shop after the tea ceremony as it was decorated beautifully with cherry blossoms […]

夏休み最初のお客さまに参加いただきました!! ママと一緒に参加いただいたお子さまから、大人顔負けの勢いでお抹茶を飲み干した後に、美味しいの笑顔をいただきました。本当に、美味しいと感じていただけたようで、とても嬉しかったです。年齢は関係ないのですね。 暑い中、ご参加いただきありがとうございました。   体験風景

本日は、はじめて、日本のお客さま向けの体験ツアーを実施させていただきました。そのうち一組は、親子体験でした。お子様の浴衣姿がとっても可愛く、お似合いで、終始、和やかな雰囲気に包まれました。体験の最後に「お茶を習ってみたい!!」と言っていただけたことが、何より嬉しい一言でした。 益々、国際化が進んでいる日本において、世界に誇れる日本の文化を若い内に体験しておくことは、とっても意味のあることだと、改めて感じました。 近日中に、また、実施予定です。ぜひ、ご参加してみてください!! 本日ご参加いただいた皆さま、お運びいただきありがとうございました!!   体験風景           >> 関連ツアーを見る
