Tea Ceremony Experience

Experience a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in our historic tea houses.

Our traditional Japanese tea houses, located in the garden, are very old buildings and one of them has been registered as a tangible cultural asset. The tea ceremony is an art form that goes back more than 1,000 years. It is not about drinking the tea, but rather, it is a ritual with precise and graceful movements in a careful sequence. To become a tea ceremony master takes at least 10 years of study and practice.
Our trained tea master will lead a tea ceremony for you upon request.
The essence of Tea Ceremony is Harmony (和) Respect (敬) Purity (清)Tranquility(寂).
The essence of Tea Ceremony embodies the very spirit of Japanese hospitality. Please kindly enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity, 一期一会 (Ichigo-Ichie).
We are pleased to welcome you to our traditional tea ceremony house, Zangetsu, which is a Japanese national registered tangible cultural property.
