Suntory Museum Tea Ceremony (Roppongi, Tokyo)

I highly recommend the Suntory Museum Tea Ceremony if you have guests in town or have yet to experience a traditional Japanese tea ceremony yourself. The Suntory Museum offers a great value for visitors. I have yet to find a ¥1,000 tea ceremony in such a lovely environment.  The tea room is lovely and incorporates some pieces from the original Suntory Museum. Great activity for families with patient children who can sit for about 30-40 mins.

Right around the corner from the Suntory Museum, your have the 21-21 Design Site, The Mori Museum and The National Art Center. Check out our recommenced museum exhibits.

The tea ceremonies usually take place a few Thursdays each month. There are three times for the ceremonies 13:00, 14:00, and 15:00.  You can check out details here. 

Tickets can only be purchased in person on the day of the ceremony. There is a 50-person limit per day. Each person in line can only buy two tickets.  Tickets go on sale at 10:00 on the 3rd floor of Midtown (Suntory Suntory Museum Tea CeremonyMuseum).

I recommend grabbing a coffee at the Starbucks downstairs and lining up by 9:30. Once you have your ticket, enjoy the Suntory Museum Exhibit, Shopping, and Lunch in Midtown or scoot over to 21-21 Design Site or the National Museum.
