- 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.
Perfect moment! Nice to understand the meaning of tea ceremony and to discover how to perform it.
This experience was everything I hoped for. Informative, guiding and hands on. I walked away from the lesson knowing I had only scratched the surface of ikebana I could repeat what I learned when I am home. So, my world will be happier and more colourful place for the experience.
