SummaryOn this tour you’ll travel through a world of tastes and learn the rich history of Matcha, Japanese green tea! Our host has served as an artisan of Sado (Japanese traditional tea ceremony) for about 40 years, and enjoys exploring how to share this art with people around the world by giving it a new age flair. Using a new practice called “table sado”, we’ll explore how Japanese tea ceremony has adapted over the years to become easier to learn, and more enjoyable in a modern context.

Hi, I am Hiroko.
I have been learning matcha-making since I was 11 years old and I opened a class 2 years ago. My vision is to spread the idea of table match-making to the world. If you would like to experience match-making in a more casual way, join this trip to gain both traditional and modern experiences.
Things to bring / NoteParticipation is free for children middle-school aged and younger.
Children must be prepared to sit quietly during ceremony portions.
