We ordered the powdered green tea and the green tea option. They both came with perfectly paired sweets to counter the slightly bitter taste of the tea. The whole experience of being in the waiting room and then being led to the tea room was great. The service was exceptional. Highly recommend.


Signed up for a tea ceremony while passing by, spur of the moment. Beautiful location. We were the only foreigners in the group, so no idea what was going on, but the atmosphere was great, and everyone appeared to be enjoying the experience. The tea was prepared outside of the room and brought in, perhaps to streamline handling the somewhat large group (15-20 people). At the end, the ceremony appeared to devolve into some kind of Tupperware party for buying bowls (I was too busy trying to re-animate my legs to pay much attention)...


This is a traditional tea house in the beautiful Kenroku-en gardens in Kanazawa. They serve matcha and wagashi ( a sweet you eat with tea) as well as green tea. About 750 yen which is normal. However, the way the tea was served was different. I went early in the morning when it was quiet and I didn't quite understand what was happening at first. You enter and pay for your tea, then you are directed to the waiting room. And you wait. Admire the view, and wonder where your tea is. Turns out, they serve tea to groups of people so once there are about 8-10 people you move to another room and then are served tea all together. I would 100% recommend this but not if you have any time constraints. It doesn't take long but you will probably be there around half an hour.
