This was a great experience, great insight to a tea ceremony for western visitors. The staff were absolutely lovely and really made the experience special. I take away a greater appreciation for the meaning of a tea ceremony, the tea was very good too.

I was there last week. For the kimono dressing and tea ceremony, it was just shy of 2 hours. Well worth it in my opinion.
