The best way to appreciate a country's culture is to immerse yourself in it. A Tea Ceremony Workshop, like the one hosted by the Royal Park Hotel in Tokyo, is the perfect introduction to Japan's traditions. Priced at ¥2,000, the 50-minute workshop is held once a month, four times a day at the hotel's Kountei tea room.
The Japanese garden and tea room of the Royal Park Hotel is easily accessible through the city center subway station. While it's in an urban area, it's secluded enough that you can escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
Sosei Motoyama, a sensei (tea ceremony master) from Edo Senke (tea ceremony school), will teach you techniques on the proper manners of entering the room, how to drink tea and eat wagashi (Japanese sweets), and the correct way of reading axis.
The workshops are also offered in English so foreign tourists won't have difficulty understanding the lecture.
Make sure to immerse yourself in Japanese culture at the Royal Park Hotel for a Japan trip that's extraordinary and memorable!
