Ami Kyoto - Experience Japanese Culture

373-26 Horiike-cho, Higashiyama-ku Kyoto

- 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.

Dear Béatrice,

Merci beaucoup for attending our tea ceremony and expressing your precious feeling here on review. It means so much to us.
You two made a beautiful atmosphere for tea ceremony and even got along with other guest. That's what we all like tea ceremony about. Getting along with people who we didn't know yesterday is the best thing we can have!

Merci beaucoup for encouraging me to learn more French! I promise I will try harder.
Profitez du reste de votre séjour et bon retour chez vous.
I hope this makes sense.

All the best,
