Camellia Garden’s striking surroundings make ours one of the most beautiful locations to experience tea ceremony in Kyoto. The traditional Japanese house, which sits amongst stunning gardens, is over 100 years old. We are located a minute’s walk from the main gate of Ryoan-ji, one of Kyoto’s most popular destinations. The Zen temple is famed for its rock garden, possibly the most renowned of its kind in the world. Please join us for an unforgettable private tea ceremony.
