Hands-On Experience

Tea Ceremony Experience

There are few experiences more quintessentially Japanese than taking part in the time-honored ritual of savoring whisked matcha tea as prepared by a tea master. And there's no better place to do this than Nara, Japan's ancient capital and home to multiple elegant tea houses and artistic Japanese confectionary. Don't be intimidated—your hosts will be happy to explain tea etiquette in English.
