What can you expect during the experience?

This package is meant to accommodate children and to make it fun and enjoyable for the whole family! You will be wearing a traditional kimono and our staff will assist you. We’ll also explain how to properly wear it and what to avoid – like wearing the left side over the right to avoid bad luck and superstition.

Girls and ladies will have their hair styled to match their kimonos. Kids may also choose to wear a samurai hakama or ninja outfit if they prefer.

You’ll be having plenty of opportunities to have your photographs taken individually and as a family in our many traditional Japanese settings! We will also provide accessories to make your photos more fun – paper umbrellas, and paper fans to name a few.

Very smooth organization, wide variety of kimonos to choose from. They help you dress, do your hair and make you look beautiful and take pictures with your cameras. The tea ceremony was beautiful and we got to mix our own tea as we were told about the history and the practice of tea ceremony as well as other interesting Japanese culture tidbits.read more

The experience was lovely. The ladies there were all very kind and gave clear instructions that made the whole thing go smoothly. The kimonos to choose from were all beautiful and the tea ceremony was a good balance between instructional and experiential. Definitely a good choice if you want to attend a tea ceremony but don’t yet know the proper etiquette.read more

My wife and I took the course that teaches students to make traditional Japanese sweets and is followed by a tea ceremony. We thought it was a fun way to spend some time during our vacation and were really happy with the experience. It's definitely a fun way to learn about a small piece of Japanese cultural history.read more

We went to participate in the tea ceremony, and it was absolutely perfect! The staff was so kind, spoke very good English and the kimonos were beautiful! I definitely recommend this place. We also took pictures for about 20-30 minutes afterwards, in a little room they have decorated for this purpose, and the staff was very patient with us! 😍read more

I was the first person ever to take part in a tea ceremony in the Tokyo location. I chose the kimono + tea ceremony option. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!My instructor was so professional and kind. First, she helped me with the choice of kimono and then she put it on me. Another young lady took care of my hair and I totally loved the result.The instructor really explained and demonstrated the respect that the Japanese people show to their guests and the tea. She took her time explaining everything to me and let me ask any kind of questions. After her explanations I was allowed to prepare a tea by myself. The instructor was so sweet and positive that I did not want to leave. She even offered to take pictures of me and with me afterwards :)I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get a feel for traditions in Japan and an authentic experience. The price is very reasonable and the location is easy to find.read more
