Making Matcha in Nihombashi

By 1 min read

Nihombashi is the center of Japan’s politics and economy and a place where many working people come and go. It is an interesting area that keeps traditional Japanese culture alive even as lots of modern development is going on.

Kyoraku-TEI in COREDO Muromachi 3 holds a “Japanese hospitality/ casual tea ceremony experience” every Saturday (http://www.veltra.com/en/asia/japan/tokyo/p/10832). You can observe the tea ceremony being performed right in front of you and drink some matcha. At the end you can also perform the tea ceremony and make your own matcha! This experience, which will give you a sense of Japan, is not to be missed.
