Fun Tea Time

Reviewed by: Sarah, 2016/09/23

My friend and I had a wonderful time. The hostess was super quick at getting the kimono on and having us ready to walk around. She was friendly and was very thorough when going through the history of the house and some of the meanings behind the tea ceremony. We had a great time despite the other couple we were doing the experience with being sour the whole time.

Japanese Experience

Reviewed by: Nina, 2015/03/04

I participated in it with my partner (who is not Japanese). It was a course full of Japanese cultural experiences that visitors like, and he and I were very satisfied with it.
A European couple who were attending at the same time course seemed very satisfied too. We had an animated conversation with them, saying that we would be sure to recommend this to others.

Since there was an English guide, I did not need to translate for my partner (which would have been stressful, since there a lot of things that I do not know about Kyoto Culture), and I enjoyed it to the fullest. When I have guests from foreign countries visiting next time, I would like to use your plan.

Recommended to both Japanese and visitors

Reviewed by: mican, 2014/10/16

I wanted to have my foreign friend experience Japanese culture in Kyoto, so I applied for it.
We enjoyed choosing beautiful kimonos and wearing them. When taking photos in kimono, they advised us about posing. Townhouse tour was also interesting.
I also tried tea ceremony.
I truly recommend this tour to ladies. Joining this tour will make ladies so excited! You can have amazing experience.
