Overview
More
The Tea Room Juan is a genuine and truly authentic Japanese Tea Room built exclusively for conducting the Japanese Tea Ceremony and adorned with precious utensils and decor. It complies with all the bespoke characteristics of a genuine and fully dedicated Tea Ceremony Room. There is nothing else available in Kyoto other than a few other Tea Rooms which are set in the grounds of Temples and Shrines and are, for obvious reasons, closed to the general public from Japan and overseas, other than on very special and rare occasions.If you are looking to experience the Japanese Tea Ceremony in its true spirit then there is nothing else better in Kyoto than the Tea Room Juan.

My partner and I attended the tea ceremony during our summer trip to Japan. Masumi was very accommodating and professional. The ceremony was relatively short, but just the right amount of time to experience and ask questions, and continue our trip.

This is a fairly short event, very simple explanation of a Japanese format tea ceremony. Under an hour, but economical and informative.

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
