- Experience Traditional Japanese Culture -【Your opportunity to be part of Kyoto】
"Ami Kyoto" provides Japanese traditional cultural experience such as ikebana, tea ceremony and calligraphy in English for foreign visitors.

The foundation of Japanese traditional culture was laid in the Muromachi period. At that time, people called "ami" protected and promoted the emerging culture, including noh dance and the tea ceremony. They were priests who served a shogun or feudal lord, and sowed the seeds of our classical aesthetic values. Ami emphasised equality, virtue, harmony and calmness in their contribution to cultural development. "Ami Kyoto" continues to spread their spirituality, which still underlies the Japanese culture of today.

Ikebana Experience in Kyoto Townhouse

I had a beautul experience at Ami Kyoto learning the history and philosophy of ikebana with ample time to create my own arrangement. The setting in an old kyoto tonhouse is beautiful and Ami's instruction was perfect. I felt confident to create my own arrangement and rhen Ami respectfully made a few adjustments that took it to a new level of beauty and understanding. This was the highlight of my trip to Kyoto and i hope to return with some friends to experience this again. Highly recommend.

Tea Ceremony Experience in Kyoto Townhouse

this was a great and very enjoyable experience. limited number of people so was intimate. our host was very knowledgeable and responsive to questions and obviously knew a lot about this tradition. Was a welcomed experience after coming from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Oh, and of course...the tea was fantastic!
