Sado (Tea Ceremony)
- Highlights of Sado
After entering the tea room through the Nijiriguchi, guests will receive a lecture about the tea room decorations, watch a tea ceremony and learn about proper etiquette while enjoying Japanese sweets and matcha tea.
The Nijiriguchi is a small, square entrance to the tea room used to separate the realm of tea from the everyday outside world. By entering through this, you can free your mind and embrace this cultural Japanese experience.
If you have any questions like, “Why is the Nijiriguchi entrance so small?”, please feel free to ask our instructors. All our sado instructors are certified specialists and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Batto (Japanese Swordsmanship)
- Highlights of Batto
Our qualified HiSUi swordsmanship instructors will demonstrate the art of “Shizan” or trial cutting. You will be able to learn the proper forms and techniques to hold, swing and sheath a real live katana sword.
This stunning samurai experience is a rarity even among people living in Japan. This is our most popular class which offers a truly authentic once in a lifetime experience.
Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy)
- Highlights of Shodo
You will receive an explanation about the different brushes and the proper way use the brushes while sitting. After warming up, you can practice different brush strokes and flicks used in the art form and learn how to write your own name in “kanji” or Japanese characters.
Afterwards, you will have an opportunity to write your own name on a small scroll and seal it with a “rakkan” stamp. This makes the perfect souvenir to treasure your memories of Japan and HiSUi.
Waso (Kimono Dressing)
- Highlights of Waso
HiSUi Waso instructors will help dress you in a traditional kimono. While for men, you will wear a “haori-hakama”. After you finish getting dressed, there will be a photo shoot. You are also welcomed to take part in other art forms while wearing your kimono or hakama.
By wearing a kimono or hakama while taking part in our batto or sado classes, you can truly get a feel and experience traditional Japanese culture.
