We joined the tea ceremony at Maikoya based on a reference from a friend. It was absolutely amazing and the tea master was very knowledgeable and really detail oriented. She took the time and explained everything thoroughly why the cleaning is important, why we should twist the bowl twice, why we should bow etc. Before the tea ceremony we put on beautiful kimonoswhich I adore since I am a fashion industry professional. After the tea ceremony we were served Japanese wagashi. Maikoya was like a museum where we got to take a picture with the samurai and small models of temples and shrines. At the end we got a surprise treat.
Had a great experience dressing up in kimono and learning the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Staff is very nice and welcoming. We greatly enjoyed our experience in Maikoya and would love to come back next time for the other activities like cooking class. I highly recommend visiting Maikoya!
The whole experience is wonderful. The staff is very friendly! the place is five stories, each beautiful with its own Japanese activity. I wore a kimono and took pictures. It was very nice to have different spots take pictures at. It's especially nice that you have all in one to get the real Japanese experience.
My friend and I got the Kimono Tea Ceremony where you get to dress up in Kimono and attend the Traditional tea ceremony. It is my first time wearing a kimono and all thanks to lovely Kayo who dressed me up in it. It is amazing how many layers go under this beautiful piece of traditional costume so try it if you have the chance! The tea ceremony is also very interesting and conducted by the wonderful Arisa who did up my hair.
We met our Japanese friends in America and when we visited Japan, they were so sweet to show us Osaka. This was an option and we thought a delightful place to experience Japanese dress and culture. Lovely to dress in a kimono and have pictures to take home. Will cherish our lovely day and visit to " the land of the rising sun". Wonderful, friendly staff.
My sister and I did the tea ceremony with Alisa and it was truly wonderful. The staff was very friendly (even though we were late!) and did our hair and dressed us in kimono before we went upstairs for the tea ceremony, which was very intricate and beautiful! It was a meditative, cultural experience that I will never forget.
