About your host

I have been studying the Japanese tea ceremony for over a decade, and now hold a master license in the craft. I co-host this event with my teacher, a ceremony expert with over 70 years of experience in this branch of traditional Japanese hospitality. She first started practicing this delicate art at age three.

What we’ll do

Kaiseki—a traditional multi-course dinner—hails from Japan’s Edo period, where it was served prior to the tea ceremony. We will gather in the tea ceremony room of a lifelong practitioner for our unique sensory experience, beginning with a homemade kaiseki lunch. This rare culinary tradition, comprised of multiple small dishes, comes with its own set of manners, which I will explain as we eat…

What else you should know

We’ll spend the duration of the ceremony in a seated kneeling position, so please wear appropriate attire. You may be uncomfortable in a miniskirt or stiff jeans, for example.
