Kyoto is the origin of the Japanese tea ceremony though there are few places to experience an authentic tea ceremony. We provide a traditional and authentic tea ceremony in an old imperial villa.
The villa, now called “Yoshida sanso“, was the villa of Prince Higashi Fushimino-miya. It was built in 1932 as a luxurious Japanese style villa with a traditional Japanese garden. It is a beautifully green garden, filled with seasonal plants, and provides a calm and tranquil area to escape from the busier center of Kyoto. It is the best place to hold an authentic tea ceremony.
