I loved this class. This and the tea ceremony were the highlight of my holiday in japan. I will recommend Ami Kyoto to my friends and family if they are traveling to kyoto
I absolutely loved this tea ceremony it and the flower arrangement class were the highlight of my holiday in japan. I will recommend Ami Kyoto to my friends if the are traveling to Kyōto
Brilliant experience !!!
One is get immersed in a delightful and relaxing atmosphere. The venue as well as both conductors are absolutely brilliant. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explore a bit more the japanese culture.
My class with Kimi at Ami Kyoto was absolutely fantastic. I'm studying floral design in the US and this class was a great introduction to the Moribana style of Ikebana, though somebody of any level would do well in this class. She did a great job explaining the different types of Ikebana style, the history of it in Japan, and how it differs from western style of arrangements. They were very hospitable and the location was a very nice traditional style building with interesting architecture. I highly recommend this class to anybody wanting a hands on Japanese experience.
Such a wonderful, peaceful cultural experience! Highly recommend to people who want a personal experience with local people that will leave you feeling restored and enlightened.
A very comprehensive introduction of Tea Ceremony, a pleasant taste of Japanese tea. Just a pity that we cannot stay longer to appreciate the beautiful garden near the tea house... ^^
We did both Ikebana and tea ceremony. The hosts were great: informative and funny!
it was a great experience. the introduction class was great and the demonstration beautiful. both of my senseis knew how to answer all questions, and were also really interested and present into the conversation. certainly something special to do in kyoto, a great little piece of the zen feeling and knowlodge.
Our family of 5 went to take the class yesterday. While I was unsure what ikebana was, at the end of the class it became very clear. The instructor has a great mix of history and principle, and then let's you try on your own. Probably the best testimonial is - "When we get home, we need to take more classes and do ikebana". Thanks to this class. If you interested in Japanese culture and learning something new take this class. Highly recommended.
Wonderful calm time, great location, lovely venue. I learnt a lot. It was both challenging and relaxing.
