How about spending some healing time with a Chujiki meal in a relaxed tea ceremony?

In the inner parlor of a historic Machiya house, viewing a garden that changes its expression every season, experiencing a calming tea ceremony.
At Naramachi Salon Tea, we offer a Chujiki meal that uses seasonal local Yamato vegetables and season desserts, along with matcha tea.
It is an easy, casual experience that allows you to feel the best of tea ceremony without any difficult technique.
For those who want to try making tea on their own, we offer a "jidate" set that comes with a lecture from a member of famous traditional dessert shop in Nara, Kashiya, and our matcha tea comes from a classic tea shop in Uji, Marukyu Koyamaen.
Though there are many different tea experiences in Nara, this is a special meal that can only be experienced at Salon Tea.

Please feel free to give it a try.

*The program will be held in simple English.
