Story & Recommendation
Casual tea ceremony held in the World Heritage Site
Built in 1603, Nijo-jo Castle has a defensive structure to defend against enemy attack. This castle was established in 1603 and used as the official residence of the first Tokugawa Shogun Ieyasu when he stayed in Kyoto. It is also known as a place where "Taisei Hokan" (the restoration of imperial rule) was announced. Each year, the tea ceremony served by different styled tea masters will be held in Nijo-jo Castle. The ticket for the tea ceremony (¥2,600) includes the admission fee for Nijo-jo Castle, Ninomaru Palace which is registered as a National Treasure and beautiful Japanese gardens. With the tickets, you can experience two tea ceremonies and soba noodle while enjoying the beautiful scenery. As this is such an enjoyable event, please feel free to join and experience the Japanese tea ceremony!
