An aesthetic way of welcoming guests, a tea ceremony is one in which everything is done according to an established order. The tea ceremony comprises the host bringing the tea utensils into the room, offering the guests sweets, and then preparing and serving them tea. The tea is made of pulverized tea leaf in hot water.
Though the tea ceremony is traditionally best enjoyed by wearing kimono or yukata, this ceremony allows travellers to join the activity in non-formal or casual clothes. Many may not be comfortable changing clothes in an unknown environment. If you are one of them, you can still enjoy the fascinating cultural ritual of tea ceremony in Osaka.
Kimono Tea Ceremony Maikoya is an authentic cultural experience within a 6-storey structure, which was a geisha house till the mid-1980s. Here, you can participate in the tea ceremony wearing a kimono. Some of the best kimonos are available for you to choose. Additionally, a wide array of antique calligraphy tools and historical artefacts are on display.

Additionally, you’ll get the chance to drink premium green tea and consume Japanese sweets while gleaning about the local culture.
This particular tea ceremony is the best one as it is neither too simplistic as the Japanese tea ceremony in Osaka (casual clothes) nor too elaborate with the involvement of a geisha as in the Kimono Tea Ceremony Maikoya Osaka. Here, you get the feel of Japanese culture without being overwhelmed by it.
