Enjoy a quiet tea in the middle of the city.

Tokyo Tower stands in the center of Tokyo because it was built as a general radio tower, and thanks to Minato Ward's landscape ordinance, the view from the observatory still maintains a splendid view. The observatory is crowded with many customers every day, but we will guide you to the observatory during the morning hours so that you can enjoy a quiet cup of tea. Enjoy a luxurious break while gazing out at the city of Tokyo in the morning.

Tea utensils that cannot be found in the tea ceremony have been continuously used since the Edo period with the full cooperation of the Japan Buddha Tea Ceremony Exchange Meeting (established in 2013. Deputy Representative Hideaki Himura and Deputy Representative Takao Hihara). We will use the works of traditional art artists selected from all over the country that have been inherited. You will be able to experience the beauty of Japanese art that has been nurtured with the tea ceremony.
