Great experience, very nice hosts with perfect English skills
This was absolutely the highlight of our trip. It combines culture, and hands-on fun. Kimi is wonderful teacher; deeply knowledgeable and pleasant. Would recommend to anyone.
Nice experience with Kimi Sensei and her student. The place is easy to access and the lesson taught was good.
Really nice moment spent for the Tea Ceremony with Ami Kyoto. The house, the teachers, the tea were perfect. I learned a lot of things and I spent a beautiful and peaceful moment. I recommand this experience.
Loved our experience! Kimi was so warm, encouraging, and informative. We also felt so spoiled with the tea and cake and owl presents! We learned a lot and just thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish.
Ikebana course with Ami was such a delightful, informative and fun experience! Ami is very knowledgeable and the atmosphere was relaxed yet well structured.
I would definitely recommend taking this course and others with Ami.
Everything was wanderful.
I booked one day in advance and got a response immediately.
When I arrived I was warmly welcomed by the two beautiful girls. Because I was the only one who booked I got a private session. They are both the friendliest people ever, so warm, heartful and passionate. I got explanations about the traditions, they showed me how to enter the tearoom, they showed me the way of making the tea and I even got a little traditional cake that tasted just amazing. Then I got the chance to do my own tea. It was so much fun and the best Matcha Greentea I've ever had. That's why I even bought a pack and a whsik for myself. (Not cheap but worth it!)
I always wanted to do a tea ceremony and I am more than happy that I did it with these two kind Ladies.
I definitely recommend it to everybody out there who likes tea and culture!
The ikebana class was fantastic. Very informative, fun and inspiring. I was able to make a beautiful ikebana arrangement. If you are looking for something special to do in Kyoto I highly recommend it.
I took part in the Ikebana class with three other participants. Kimi was very instructive and gave us some great history of how the art has evolved, what components make up the style, where to look for inspiration and how to incorporate Ikebana into your life. I had a great time in the class and thoroughly enjoyed Kimi's teaching style. As it was a rainy day in Kyoto, I ended up going to their tea ceremony class later that same day and had a brilliant time learning the history of the ceremony and drinking some delicious matcha and trying the sweets that go with it.
