- 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.

Brilliant introduction to Ikebana in a small group environment. Our teacher was a delight and her English was excellent and easy to understand.
We thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to Ikebana. Kimi was a great teacher who combined expert demonstration with hands-on experience. Each guest was given the same materials to work with and Kimi offered us encouragement and guidance as we worked. Afterwards, she reviewed our work and showed us small things we could do to improve it. Amazing. I would highly recommend this experience.
