Great experience, Masumi Kirihata is very professional and speaks english very well to perform and explain an authentic japanese tea ceremony. We probably spent the most immersive and relaxing moment of our trip in Japan.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

No, normally there is a dress code for attending the tea ceremony but when you come to Ju-An you will leave your shoes at the entrance of the chashitsu and then proceed inside waring your socks. Best regards
