User Voice

“I was given a tea ceremony experience from Kyoto Maikoya as a gift from a friend in August. As someone who has been fascinated by the traditional Japanese arts and ways for all of my adult life I found it a most authentic experience, even though I was in Australia and we participated via zoom.  The tea master was gracious and generous, ensuring that I understood the significance of each step of the ceremony.  Though her English was most understandable, a translator was handy if required. The tea room was beautifully appointed and I felt welcomed into that space even though it was a virtual encounter. A very satisfying experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Kyoto Maikoya.”

Ikebana flower experience
Ikebana means making flowers alive or giving flowers life. It is the Japanese way of flower arrangement also known as kado. During the Heian period, the priests who took care of altar arrangements were called ikenobo and they are the first known masters who developed the best way of arranging flowers.
Geisha Online – PRIVATE Meeting with a Geisha from Kyoto
it was impossible to meet a geisha for first-timers because in Kyoto there is a rule called “ichigensan okotowari” which means personal reference is necessary for a geisha meeting. But, now, for the first time ever, you can meet a real geisha from Kyoto’s geisha district online.

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

Had an absolutely wonderful experience. We experienced the tea ceremony as well as traditional Japanese sweets making. The hosts/tea masters delivered a professional and traditional experience while also staying light hearted and comical enough for touristical enjoyment. Everything is well explained + they are open to all questions. Our host was very conversational and we really felt like she placed our enjoyment as a priority. This is definitely something you can not miss !!!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
