What you'll do

The class will begin with an Ikebana demonstration and I will share with you special techniques on how to enjoy Ikebana for when you return home. Then, you will have time to create your own arrangement. Once you have completed your Ikabana, I will demonstrate a Chado practice. You will then make and drink your own tea, and I will I teach you the different manners involved. We will be sitting on the floor but we also provide chairs. We recommend that you take a lot of photos so you can share this fun experience with your family and friends. At the end of the ceremony we will drink matcha tea (green tea) from the famous Yamamasa Koyamaen tea company, which is from the Uji area. I will also serve you delicious and authentic Japanese sweets you may have never had. At the end of the class you will receive an omiyage (gift) from Do-Dosu, it will be a Kenzan,japanese style flower holder! いけばなの基礎と手順をお教えし、デモンストレーションをご覧いただきます。その後は自分のイメージを膨らませて自由にお花をいけてください。ご自宅でいけばなを楽しむテクニックもお伝えします。いけばなが終われば茶道の作法について説明をした後、お点前をご覧いただきます。茶会での簡単なマナーの実践と実際に抹茶を点てる体験もご用意しています。椅子に座っての見学が可能ですので正座が苦手な方もご安心ください。お写真もたっぷり写し、素敵な思い出をお持ち帰りください。美しい和菓子と宇治の製茶問屋「山政小山園」のお抹茶をご賞味いただきます。すべてが貴重な日本の文化体験です。お土産として剣山を用意していますのでお楽しみに

Yukiyo

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. http://dodosu-kyoto2222.jimdofree.com/
