- 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.

This class was excellent, both informative and fun. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone. The teacher, Kimi, was knowledgable and friendly. A great experience.
An absolutely incredible experience. We were immersed in the beautiful routine of the tea ceremony, and were able to experience a slice of authentic Japanese culture. Mari was so nice, and we were seriously impressed by her knowledge of the tea ceremony. It was an honour to be able to experience this beautiful and peaceful ceremony.
Great experience - highly recommend it!
