Japanese Tea Ceremony

The Japanese tea ceremony is a traditional culture for conversation and enjoyment of matcha green tea were a carefully selected assortment of seasonal sweets, tea bowls, hanging scrolls, flower vases and tea flowers. It can be said to be the aesthetics of "hospitality" and "setting", in which the owner of the tea house pours his heart and soul into making his guests enjoy the tea ceremony.
At Nishiki Orizuruya, guests can make their own matcha tea and experience the Japanese world while enjoying delicious sweets and matcha tea.
