There’s a long string of rules, etiquette and subtle intricacies that go into a traditional tea ceremony – and partaking in one is a real eye opener. It’s certainly well up there on the list of must-dos while in Japan.

Nadeshinko Tea Experience

The Nadeshinko company offer a tea ceremony experience complete with full kimono attire. The lady taking the ceremony speaks English and guides the guests through the tea ceremony process, explaining the details and rituals.

The kimono dressing is pretty serious and the women there take real time and care to get your kimonos perfect. I visited with five female family members, it took them hours to get fully dressed and they loved it!
