What people say

"Going to a Tea Ceremony and wearing a Kimono was my top priority for Japan. After reviewing many places, I decided to go for this one and I am so happy I did. I booked in advance from the link you find here in Thatch and I recommend booking beforehand as some days were not available even months in advance. Allow 3h for the whole experience as it will take some time to get dressed, do the tea ceremony, and then take pictures at the end. It was one of the best memories I have of the trip. In this experience, you will make your own Matcha Tea in the traditional way. The host and the assistant were explaining all about the Tea Ceremony, and how to make the Matcha, and answered the questions we had. Before the Ceremony start, you will get dressed by some of the ladies and they will even make your hair! You can choose the Kimono and hair accessories you like, but as a girl, be ready to suffer because that thing is really tight and for me was impossible to keep the posture they wanted a girl to keep, so I sat as a man instead (don't be ashamed). After the Tea Ceremony, you will have all the time you want to take pictures and videos. There is a cute garden where they leave more traditional umbrellas and fans that you can use as props, and you can also go around in the neighborhood as much as you want. They will let you store all your stuff in a bag that you will leave in there, and give you a small purse where you can store your valuable ones. Overall, I really loved it, and felt so authentic, that I highly recommend it to anyone going to Kyoto. "
