KAIKOH-AN Tea Room in the Sky
City of Yokohama
On the 65th floor of Yokohama Royal Park Hotel, 256 meters above Japan’s second biggest city, is the KAIKOH-AN Tea Room. Also known as the ‘Tea Room in the Sky’, from the large windows you can see the cityscape below and on clear days even Mt. Fuji in the distance.
Here you can experience an authentic tea ceremony while enjoying beautiful seasonal sweets in a traditional tearoom. A tea master talks you through all aspects of the tea ceremony, including the etiquette and the intention behind sweets and tools. They will also explain to you the decorations found around the tearoom, including the hanging scrolls and flowers.
Known in Japan as sadō and chadō, literally meaning ‘The Way of Tea’, by the end of the ceremony you will be serenely relaxed, but also more knowledgeable about Japanese culture.
Typically done while seated on the floor, chairs are available for those who prefer.
3 minutes walk from Minatomirai Station in central Yokohama. Alternatively, 30 minutes by Airport Limousine Bus from Haneda Airport to YCAT (Yokohama City Air Terminal), then 5 minutes by taxi.
