I personally often visit Nijo-jo Castle to enjoy the seasonal flowers and trees as well as the beautiful Japanese garden and Ninomaru Palace which is registered as a National Treasure. Kyoto Citizen Tea Party at Nijo-jo Castle is one of the main events held in Nijo-jo Castle and it is such a great opportunity to experience the Japanese tea ceremony in the World Heritage Site. You may also enjoy tasting the soba noodle which comes along with the tea ticket.

With your ticket, you can experience the two tea ceremonies. It may be crowded with visitors but you will surely enjoy the fine taste of Matcha and Japanese dessert that comes along with the tea. Please check out the beautiful tea cups and plates as their colors are well matched in an autumn season.
