Tokijyo-san is a very hospitable and warm teacher. She is also a true professional in her field. The experience of wearing yukata, learning a traditional Japanese dance and participating in tea ceremony were wonderful. The venue was also in beautiful Japanese style. I had a great time!

It was great opportunity to learn Jiutamai dance from Tokijyo San. Tokijyo San was very kind to me and answered me the questions with patient during the course. Thanks for the time and I can say I enjoyed every moment I spent with Tokijyo San who is such a charming lady and had everything settled very well. I love the Kimono and I also love the part that learning how to put the beautiful clothes on. The Japanese Tea experience was also very interesting. I had time to take a rest, eat something and chat a little bit with Tokijyo San. I hope I will get back to Mikata-shi soon to study again on the yellow flower with Tokijyo San that was my favorite part and the best memories.

it was the best experiance i had during my stay in Tokyo! She really took a lot of time to explain about the dance before and the jukata as well. how to wrap and fold. We took many photo’s and were all able to follow to learn the dance in a basic way ;) We even made a video together as well! The place is beautifull! And is used for local dance and sing classes as well. This makes it a change to see local traditional kimono wear as well. Kokijyo learned us how to do a tea ceremony as well! She is very specialist in the traditions and this makes it very exiting to listen to her explanations. I recommend anyone to join this class!!
