Feedback from our guests

I very much enjoyed both tea ceremony and the geisha event and really enjoyed learning more about these traditions.

I would recommend this to anyone. I hope you organize more in the future. Thank you - Italy

I didn’t know what to fully expect when I signed up for this experience, but I was complete impressed with the thoughtfulness put into the visitors’ experience. I felt completely immersed in the Japanese culture for those 2 hours. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to others. Thank you! - USA

I love all the performances but they were too short! - USA

Not only was it fun but informative and I felt like I learned a lot. I liked that it was a small group so it felt more intimate and special.

The venue was beautiful and felt like I was taken into the past, which made the experience more culturally immersive. - USA

It will be useful to provide participants with primer/information materials to read ahead of the session (especially around etiquettes and proper interaction both for tea ceremony and geiko performance) - so that the session can be more fruitful. - Singapore

Both the tea ceremony and the geisha performance was very interesting and the atmosphere was really special. - Hungary
