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.

I had bought the private tea ceremony for my dad as birthday gift and it didn't disappoint. Masumi Kirihata really made us feel welcome and we left feeling like we had learnt alot, and had a lovely insight into Japanese culture.

Such a great learning experience and Masumi has a great sense of humour too. I'd really recommend this activity to understand the tea ceremony and even Japanese sensibilities much better.

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
