Miyajima: Cultural Experience in a Kimono

1. Miyajima: Cultural Experience in a Kimono

Enter Tokujuji Temple and have a traditional Japanese cultural experience, combining your choice of a tea ceremony, calligraphy lesson, or both, all while wearing traditional Japanese dress. During the calligraphy lesson, you'll learn about the tools used and how to draw the lines with step-by-step instructions. You'll have plenty of time to practice one or more of the Kanji, Chinese Characters, to draw. While you practice, your instructor will make a sample of your name. Once you have practiced the Kanji, practice how to draw your name in Japanese, either in Hiragana or Katakana. Select the best of your work and sign it and stamp it. It will be put into a cylinder to take home. The tea ceremony has 5 steps. First, the tea master will bring in the tools. Then, they will purify the tools, make the tea, clean the tools, and take everything back to the Mizuya, backyard. Enjoy sweets and matcha tea. Learn how to drink the tea in the correct manner and how to make the tea. Take a walk in the beautiful Japanese garden and have pictures taken.

What people are saying about Hiroshima, Japan

It was a very good experience, I liked it a lot, I had a lot of fun. I did it with my dad, we both thought it was even nicer. Kenji-sensei was extraordinarily patient and these lessons are great, the explanations on how to cut the material and all the rest were very well explained and very engaging. Thank you again for this good time and I recommend with enthusiasm even if you are not an archery pro this activity will please you very much I am sure.

It was alot of fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of bow and arrow, but was also a great coach. He helped us improve our aim so we could hit the target. I highly recommended this experience

This was a great experience! I wasn't expecting to get pictures and videos from when I was shooting but They came out great! Highly recommend this!

Was the best experience super patient with us for two people who know no Japanese. Really enjoyed and defiantly worth it.

This was the highlight of our visit to the island!
