      Maikoya Tea Ceremony A Must
      Fascinating cultural experience. One must experience when visiting Tokyo Japan. Maikoya in Asakusa staff are a wonderful, from kimono attire assistance to tea ceremony. Kimono is included and can be worn even after the tea ceremony - till 6PM. I enjoyed the tea so much, our host and everyone in Maikoya.

      Get a new look in Japanese Kimono & enjoy tea ceremony activity in Tokyo.
      Immerse to Japanese culture with tea ceremony & kimono experience in Tokyo. You can get colorful kimono, hair set up and the service from staffs to make you look great. Booking is required for private or group class. Tea ceremony activity is good for friends, couple or family especially on rainy day. The photo scene inside the shop is limited but the staffs allow you to go out 1 hour around Asakusa area.

      Matcha Tea Ceremony
      This was my best experience in Japan. The guides were so helpful, amazing and nice. I got to wear a traditional Kimono. The tea ceremony was incredible. The guide doing the tea ceremony was great at explaining everything. They would take our photos for us. I highly recommend this activity. After they let me keep using the Kimono to go outside and take photos at the Temple. I loved everything about this experience!

      Beautiful Experience
      This ceremony was so beautiful! It’s an honor to be able to experience such a sacred ceremony. I felt beautiful in the kimono they allowed me to take pictures in, too.

    Immersing myself in Tokyo Maikoya's Tea Ceremony and Kimono Experience was an absolute delight! The staff were friendly and accommodating, helping me choose and dress in a beautiful kimono, belt, and hair accessory without any rush. The tea ceremony was both educational and serene, offering insight into Japanese traditions. I appreciated the ample time for photos and the freedom to explore Asakusa until 6 pm in the kimono provided. It's a must-do for anyone seeking a unique cultural experience in Tokyo, blending fun, education, and hospitality seamlessly.

    We had a great time learning about the traditional tea ceremony. This felt like a very authentic way for us to experience one of our first days in Japan, particularly with our large group of 6. I'd recommend this experience to anyone visiting Tokyo!

    What a wonderful morning we had at Maikoya. When we arrived the girls and boys were taken to separate changing areas where we were gently guided into traditional kimonos and the girls had their hair done beautifully. Then we had plenty of time to wander round the little zen garden, take photos and read about the history of the tea ceremony. After this we went upstairs with 2 other families for our own tea ceremony. Our lovely hostess explained the ceremony, showed us how to mix matcha and we were also given sweets to counteract the slightly bitter tea. There was absolutely no expectation that you had to either eat or drink anything you were offered, it was all very relaxed. After the tea ceremony we had more time in a different little zen garden to relax and take photos if we wanted. Then, in our own time, we were able to go back and change into our own clothes. But you got to keep the cool toe socks! A brilliant experience with lovely hosts.

    A short but informative lesson on the tea ceremony! You get to pick out your kimono and obi and they let you wear it around the neighborhood if you want to take pictures outside. This is totally worth it! They also give you a little chair if you can't kneel for long periods of time. The only down side is the obi are tied pretty tight so you can't bend very well.

    Wow what an incredible experience! We were worried it was going to be a bit touristy but it was one of our favorite memories in Kyoto! My husband and I loved the experience of dressing in Kimonos. I got to pick out the color of mine and got my hair done. The ladies are so quick in getting everyone changed! You were also able to keep it on the whole day if you wanted to. Learning about the tea ceremony was fun and we got to make our own cup of Matcha tea. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Kyoto.

    The tea ceremony was a very awesome experience led by toko! The kimono selection was great and we even got to walk around afterwards with them. They have a small beautiful garden to take pictures in as well. Highly recommend if you’re in Tokyo! Facility was clean and staff were very nice and respectful!

    This experience was really nice. The hostesses were extremely professional, kind, and friendly. It was nice learning the history and then seeing the actual process of the traditional tea ceremony. Then actually getting to try it myself was cool.
