What a fantastic experience! Terumi is a lovely kind host and gave us a lot of information about Japanese culture. First, we made Japanese sweet together. It was so interesting for me to mold the soft dough into a beautiful flower which we can eat with a bowl of matcha later. Afterwards, she took us a cosy Japanese room and started tea ceremony. I learned a lot of things about tea ceremony even l am Japanese. It gave us special insight into Japanese culture and tradition. Also, the house was a cosy Japanese house and it would be a good chance to see a real Japanese daily life. One of the meeting point, JR Ibaraki is a convinient location, takes just 10 minutes fro JR Osaka station and her house  is close to the station. I highly recommend you to join this experience!
