What a great way to experience Kyoto culture and art! We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history and meaning of Ikebana before creating our own flower arrangement. Kimi was very welcoming, knowledgable and passionate. She served us tea and local sweets at the end of the class and even gave us a present handmade by her mother. A truly special experience!
For the participation of four foreigners, I joined the Japanese.
You can tell me the rules of traditional tea ceremony in detail.
Both of the hosts were wonderful people, it was a wonderful tea ceremony filled with the spirit of hospitality.
I can enjoy Japanese culture.
Mari was so friendly and knowledgeable! With her guide, we learned the history, meanings, and rules of tea ceremony. It was helpful for us to get closer to traditional Japanese culture in a different way. Wonderful experience!
Our ikebana class was incredible! My mother especially enjoyed it - we bought the ikebana pointed-bases so that we could practice ourselves at home!
Very relaxing and fun! Mari was very warm and friendly throughout the session and helpful! The building was very easy to find and their explanations were very insightful. Absolutely loved the experience and would come again!
Kimi is a very thorough, kind and friendly instructor. Her lessons are well balanced and you get to understand the history of ikebana and its different styles. You’ll get a chance to do your own ikebana and she’ll give you advice whenever you need it. Before your hands on experience, she’ll explain the basics of ikebana so it is easy and fun! I will definitely join her lessons again!
A very instructive and pleasant session. I definitely learned lots of informations and how to practice it. Highly recommending it.
The session was excellent. It was a good balance of information on the history, a practical demonstration and then time to create our own arrangement. The instructor was very encouraging and spent time helping each of us.
This class was excellent
The teacher was absolutely brilliant
I learnt so much even in just 90 minutes I'm a florist in the UK and found this class extremely informative and interesting
Can't recommend this class enough
A wonderful experience I shall never forget
Today I had my first experience with ikebana. A must do for flower lovers. I highly recommend the course at Ami Kyōto. We had a passionate instructor. We had a relaxed, calm and familiar ambience. Got to know about the concept of ikebana, did our own experience with arranging the flowers and I got enough support for my first masterpiece. Thanks a lot.
