Kudan will start a new “Tea Ceremony Course” starting in Autumn 2017.

You can take Japanese lessons(Conversation Course) and Tea Ceremony lessons after your Japanese lessons.

In this course, you can learn Japanese language and Japanese Tea Ceremony(Bonryakutemae) at the same time. You will also learn about Tea Ceremony culture, how to make Tea, and how to serve Tea. We will give you a certificate of completion after finishing the 5-week course. Please enjoy the beauty of autumn in Japan while you study Japanese in Kudan Institute.


Bonryakutemae, is also called “Obon temae” or “Bon temae”. During Bonryakutemae, we prepare all the required tools on the “Obon(tray)” and make tea. We will give you a Bonryakutemae Tea Ceremony Set. It states that you can make tea in your home country.

Q&A

Am I still eligible for the course without understanding Japanese at all?
You can start the Course without understanding Japanese at all. Tea Ceremony course is taught both in Japanese and English.
Not having experienced Tea Ceremony at all in my life, am I still eligible to join the course?
Yes, you will have no problem at all. You can learn about Tea Ceremony from the basics.
Can I participate in the course from the middle of the program?
No, you cannot. The program is designed to progress gradually to accomplish the “Bontemae” by the end of the course, so no participation is allowed midway through the program.
