Getting to this place can be a little tricky so you might want to use google map. If you are coming from JR line, the stop to get off is Uji Station. From there onwards, open up your google map and search for Takumi-no Yakata. Follow the directions given to you via the app. To reach to Takumi-no Yakata, it takes about 10 to 15mins walk from the station and you have to walk along the Uji Bridge. After hitting the end of the bridge you actually get to read some of the history about the bridge. Once done reading make a right turn and walk all the way in and keeping left. Eventually you will hit a junction and there are 2 roads. Just stay on the left lane and you should see the tea house within the next few steps. Best is to use google maps.
The experience at the tea house is awesome. It is a very small place, nice and quiet. The staffs are not really proficient in English so you may take some time to be able to understand them. Upon ordering your tea, they will show you the pictures of the tea and how it is being made. Following by guiding you how to make and drink the tea. You can even eat the tea leaves and surprisingly the leaves are really delicious!
This place however, do not sell any tea leaves. If you are looking to buy the teas, the staffs will most likely recommend you to get the teas just along the small little road before the Uji Bridge. You may want to search for byodoin omote-sando in google maps.
Highly recommend for tea lovers. You won't regret it.
