Here, you can enjoy an authentic tea ceremony in a Japanese-style tearoom.
Please drink Ujicha either sitting on tatami mats in the typical Japanese-style tearoom or at the table.
We will offer you a true Japanese tea ceremony style atmosphere and delicious tea.
Tea ceremony is one of Japan’s cultural traditions. Each procedure and action in tea ceremony has its own meaning, and once you understand it, you will be able to enjoy Japanese tea more deeply. Step inside the world of Japanese tea, and enjoy the time to focus on your inner-self through making Matcha!

This is an experience of enjoying thick tea in the mystical atmosphere of a tearoom.
Thick tea is Matcha with a thick consistency served in a formal tea ceremony.
Although not commonly drunk, Matcha of very high quality is used, and thus its own flavor and aroma spread directly and fully in the mouth.
The tearoom is lit up by the light of a Japanese candle only. You will eat Namagashi (unbaked sweets) and drink Matcha in a quaint “evening tea ceremony”.
It is a special experience only available at the Fukujuen Kyoto Flagship Store and limited to one group per day.
The light and shade of the Japanese candle create a mystical atmosphere.
A cup of tea surrounded by a tranquil atmosphere will certainly have a supreme taste.
