- Experience Traditional Japanese Culture -
Your opportunity to be part of Kyoto
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.

Loved our experience! Kimi was so warm, encouraging, and informative. We also felt so spoiled with the tea and cake and owl presents! We learned a lot and just thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish.
Ikebana course with Ami was such a delightful, informative and fun experience! Ami is very knowledgeable and the atmosphere was relaxed yet well structured.
I would definitely recommend taking this course and others with Ami.
Everything was wanderful.
I booked one day in advance and got a response immediately.
When I arrived I was warmly welcomed by the two beautiful girls. Because I was the only one who booked I got a private session. They are both the friendliest people ever, so warm, heartful and passionate. I got explanations about the traditions, they showed me how to enter the tearoom, they showed me the way of making the tea and I even got a little traditional cake that tasted just amazing. Then I got the chance to do my own tea. It was so much fun and the best Matcha Greentea I've ever had. That's why I even bought a pack and a whsik for myself. (Not cheap but worth it!)
I always wanted to do a tea ceremony and I am more than happy that I did it with these two kind Ladies.
I definitely recommend it to everybody out there who likes tea and culture!
