What we'll do

I'm Noriko. After introducing myself I will show some pictures of tearooms. Through telling the differences between living rooms and tearooms, you will be able to touch several kinds of Japanese arts as if you attend a tea gathering of Chanoyu or a so-called tea ceremony. In the end, I will make tea in my tearoom, hoping that you will enjoy Japanese culture through knowing Japan.

Your professional introduction to ”Cha-no-yu” culture was excellent.
Truly recommend the tour to those interested in Japanese culture and the real atmosphere of "Chashitu", tea room.

Tour was wonderful. Everything she prepared for the athletes has meaning. That is the true meaning of hospitality.
Thank you very much for your warm welcome, Hourai-san.

Horai san was such an elegant tea master, nicely wearing kimono and speaking beautiful English. In the first half, she explained the tea room, and in the latter half, she showed us making tea. That made me feel as I had attended a tea ceremony. This tea tour is an excellent cultural experience. I highly recommend it. Thank you so much. Horizon.

Horai-san is a wonderful tea master. On this tour, she navigated me to the world of the tea ceremony in an elegant way. She wore beautiful kimono and talked about the tea ceremony as a comprehensive Japanese art in fulent English. I was impressed by beautiful tea utensils and decor in the tea room. Thank you so much for your lecture and warm hospitality, Horai-san.
