PREMIUM Tea Ceremony and Kaiseki Lunch in Taikoen Garden by Maikoya
You will make a green tea (Matcha) in an ancient style Japanese tea ceremony room wearing Kimono. We are the only facility in Osaka to provide tea ceremony services on a daily basis. We are the highest ranked tea ceremony facility in Osaka. We accept walk-ins but it is better to reserve online if you don’t like to wait. In this workshop, a qualified instructor will walk you through step by step of traditional tea ceremony. This is a ritual-like activity where ceremonial tea is prepared and presented to promote well-being, mindfulness and harmony. It is also called the Way of the Tea.
Instead of sitting on the floor, we also give you an option to do the tea ceremony performed by sitting on a chair (It is called Ryurei-shiki in Japanese). Please mention the number of people who will need chairs when booking. You will see a box titled “order notes.”
