Our expert tea master and host, and friendly staff will be demonstrating and guiding the group on how to prepare the matcha tea. Kids are sure to enjoy the hands-on experience of making their own drink!
Since matcha tea may be a bit strong for kids, we will also provide the orange juice just in case.
It’s not only enjoyable but also a comprehensive educational experience.
You will be given a background on the tea ceremony, its significance in Japanese culture, and the steps for preparation.
Traditional kimonos for the whole family
We provide a variety of sizes and styles for kimonos, suitable for everyone in the family!
The staff will be assisting and teaching you how to properly put it on. Girls and ladies will be given a hairstyle suitable for their kimonos.
Kids can also wear other local costumes such as the samurai hakama or the ninja uniform if they prefer.
You will also be sampling traditional Japanese sweets called wagashi, which will vary in flavors, shapes, and colors according to the season. Each experience at Kimono Tea Ceremony Maikoya is unique just by the snacks served at each session, not just by the personalization for each guest.

What is a tea ceremony?
The tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition celebrated all over East Asia, and a respected ritual in Japan. The Japanese art of the tea ceremony served as an opportunity for the nobility and the samurai to communicate and meet in secret during the Edo Period 300 years ago.
Today, it’s a form of meditative art form for everyone in the family!
