Kimono Tea Ceremony for Groups Kyoto Maikoya

At Maikoya we can accommodate a group of up to 50 people. For larger groups we may be able to provide a solution as well since we train many tea ceremony specialists. Please kindly note that we allow our guests to perform the hands on tea making and serving activity rather than just demonstrating it, so it is a pure authentic ritual that your group members will cherish and remember for the rest of their lives.

*** This event can be reserved for 11 and more people.

*** Children under 7 can not enter the tea ceremony venue. If you have a child under 6 in your party, you can not make the reservation for this experience.


It is ideal to wear a kimono during the traditional tea ceremony. The best thing at Maikoya is that you can dress up and enjoy the ceremony in an authentic tea ceremony room without leaving our facility.
