Hello! My name is Yukiyo and I run the “Do-Dosu” studio. My goal is to share Japanese culture through a fun and memorable experience. I was born and raised in Kyoto, and my interest in Japanese heritage practices started at a young age, since my parents were Tea Ceremony and Ikebana teachers.
I am a licensed Ikebana and Chado teacher, and I have been teaching for several decades. My Ikebana work is showcased across Japan, and I have exhibited and performed in Paris.
My studio is spacious and has both Japanese (tatami floors) and western-styled rooms for the practice. I have all of the necessary equipment and I will teach you step-by-step how to do both Ikebana and Chado. The class will be authentic and you’ll learn the beauty of Japanese culture through the traditional practices.

素晴らしいおもてなしで、非常に有意義な2時間でした。 体験はもちろんのとこ、使われている道具も良いのものばかりで、見ているだけで、日本文化を体感する出来ました。 なにより今日のために特別に用意していただいたお菓子、そして質の良いお抹茶が印象に残っています。 茶道や華道のおもてなし精神溢れる体験だと思います。

今まで一度も生け花をしたことがなかったので、触るお花、使う道具どれも初めてで、とても楽しかったです。 ホストの方々はお着物で出迎えてくださり、本格的なお茶室をながめながらする生け花は、日本人の私でもなかなかできない経験だと思います。 持ち帰ったお花とミニ剣山で、自宅でも生け花に挑戦しました。 素人にもわかりやすい、お花の生け方を説明してくださるので、自宅でお花を飾るのに非常に参考になりました。

華道と茶道に普段触れる機会が少ないので、とてもいい経験になりました。ホストのお二人はとても親切で、質問にも丁寧に答えてくださいます。おススメです。

Fue una experiencia unica en un lugar muy agradable y tradicional. Las dos hosts son muy amables y me explicaba todo bien con mucha paciencia. Super recomendable si buscas algo muy autentico en Kioto!
