Tokyo Grand Tea Ceremony 2017

Taking place at Hamarikyu Gardens – one of Tokyo’s most beautiful classical gardens – this event is a showcase of one of Japan’s unique cultural assets – the tea ceremony.

This isn’t just for enthusiasts, the idea seems to be to make it as accessible as possible with both indoor tea ceremonies (in the famed tea house in the middle of a salt water pond) and outdoor ceremonies. There will even be ceremonies conducted in English.

To attend a ceremony (to get a cushion in the viewing area) it costs 300yen for adults while kids of primary school age or under get in for free. You should go along as early as you can to book your place.
