You're welcome to participate in a Japanese tea ceremony hosted by me. It will be held at my private family home in Tokyo, where the atmosphere is very cozy and friendly for up to six guests.

What else you should know
Bring a pair of socks, as bare feet are not allowed on tatami mats. Please do not wear rings, as they may cause damage, scratches, or cracks on the ceramic tea ceremony tools. Photo: Atsuko Tanaka
What I’ll provide
Matcha tea
I will serve a cup of matcha to each guest, and you are invited to make your own for the second cup.
Traditional sweets
Each guest will have—wagashi—seasonal Japanese sweets that perfectly match with green tea.
What to bring
A pair of socks (if you're bare foot)
