Tea ceremony or sado is one of Japan’s most representative art forms. Tea ceremony has roots in zen philosophy and a deep spiritual side. It requires concentration and many years of practice to master, but visitors and tourists can get a taste for the art form as a guest to a tea ceremony.

Midori-en main shop near Hankyu Itami station houses a traditional tea room, a space for practicing and performing the art of Japanese tea ceremony. Here, visitors can experience Japanese tea ceremony performed by an instructor dressed in kimono. There is also the chance to learn about the background and manners of the tea ceremony, and take a look at the decoration of typical tea rooms.

Visitors also have the chance to try on a simple 'practice' kimono and have a go at whisking tea themselves.
