Recently matcha green tea has become very popular all around the world. As you may know, matcha plays a very important role in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. However, learning about Japanese tea ceremony means much more than just learning to make matcha. Let's find the concept and philosophy behind this performing art. At first, you will learn the basic concepts and ideas of tea ceremony. You will also learn how to behave in a tea room and appreciate its decoration. Next, you'll watch a demonstration of "the way of tea". We think you will enjoy the quiet and serene atmosphere. And now let's make your own tea! We will tell you how to drink it, and also serve you a specially selected Japanese cake. Come, step into the world of profound spirituality and set your soul free, and let's have fun together!! - Facebook Page: Ami Kyoto - Instagram: @ami_kyoto
Hi, I'm Kimi. I'm honored to introduce tea ceremony for foreign visitors. I've practiced tea ceremony for 7 years in Yabunouchi School. Our utensils and decorations are supervised and carefully selected by our tea master and my aunt who is also a tea master. I'd love to share how profound the spirituality of tea ceremony is, and how fun it would be adopting it into your daily life! As we work as a team, please let me introduce our best staff. -Shoko: I touched tea ceremony for the first time when I was 8 years old. I've taken Urasenke School lessons for 25 years. Please feel the mental richness of our tradition getting away from your busy life. -Hitomi: It's 10 years since I started to learn tea ceremony in Omotesenke School by my mother's recommendation. Please let me show our traditional, meaningful yet efficient style of tea ceremony.
Ami Kyoto: It is a unique opportunity to be able to spend time inside a traditional Japanese townhouse. Ours is about 80 years old and we think you'll agree it is still beautiful. Please come and immerse yourself in a quaint, yet elegant space. You can also attend the workshops below that are registered with Airbnb! - Calligraphy Experience in Kyoto Townhouse by Kasho Shirai - Ikebana Experience in Kyoto Townhouse by Kimiko Yamamoto
