There is much more to the tea ceremony than just drinking tea. It’s called WA-KEI-SEI-JAKU. WA means peace and harmony, KEI means respect, SEI means purity, JAKU means tranquility. The tea ceremony experience itself is not only about drinking matcha green tea and eating sweets—there are more important pieces that I will teach you. I will begin by giving an introduction about manners of the guests in the tea ceremony. Then I will give a demonstration by performing the steps.

Tea ceremony experience in Nijyo in Kyoto

This is review from the guests! My wife and I were very fortunate to observe Ryokufu perform the magnificent art of a Japanese tea ceremony. I want to emphasize that this has been undoubtably a peak experience for us on our 15 day trip so far. Ryokufu is exceptionally well versed in both English and Japanese. She takes time to explain both the history, significance, and process of the tea ceremony (with the added benefit of a Q&A session at the end of the experience). Afterwards, she performs the beautiful time honored tea ceremony tradition while also allowing observers to take photographs for memories sake. She then guides participants to making their own matcha tea which one can enjoy with the provided delicious bite sized snack. Lastly, Ryokufu showcases her amazing calligraphy skills when personalizing your certificate. As a bonus, we were able to purchase the matcha tea powder that she utilized during the class (which per my wife is the best she’s had when comparing to what we’ve enjoyed in California and Japan so far).

Review/ レビュー

Justine  Ryokufu est très accueillante, souriante et nous avons bien pu discuter en anglais. Nous avons eu la chance d’être seuls avec elle pour la cérémonie du thé, nous avons donc pu prendre le temps de poser toutes nos questions ! La cérémonie en elle-même est assez courte mais agréable. J’ai pu apprendre de nouvelles choses. Le thé était délicieux !”
