"I had the best time with Kana's Tea Ceremony. By understanding the roots and foundation of Tea Ceremonies you begin to develop a deeper appreciation not only through this experience but throughout our daily life. I not only saw the peace and tranquility during this Tea Ceremony but I found myself coming to small realisations and further self awareness. To get the most out of this Tea Ceremony, immerse yourself in that exact moment and realise there won't be any other just like it :) Kana is a very kind and lovely lady with a very high fluency in English. And her entire demeanour makes her welcoming, humble and patient towards her guests. I am grateful and thankful that I was able to attend Kana's Tea Ceremony. If or when I visit Japan again, I feel like I can attend another Tea Ceremony to learn something new or visit a new-made friend." (E from Australia)
"We had a unique moment in time with Kana. She took us to a beautifully decorated room where she performed an incredibly graceful tea ceremony. We felt part of a peaceful historic tradition and enjoyed every minute of this experience. I had the taste of matcha on my lips for hours after which pleasantly prolonged the sensation. I can warmly recommend this event." (U from Denmark)"
"The tea ceremony was wonderful and very tasteful. We left her house filled up with new energy and kind spirit." (T from England)
