I think many people going to Japan are curious about the Japanese tea ceremony, and there's none better to experience it with than Tsutomu!! His mother was a tea ceremony instructor, so he definitely cares about the history and the experience. The ceremony is held in a house that reminds me of Kurosawa films-- the house usually booked on airbnb, so this is a great way to see the house for a few hours too! We learned a lot and the experience didn't take very much time from our day. Tsutomu is very flexible for the timing, definitely send him a message if you're interested.
