Why our tea ceremony experience, especially at HAKUSASONSO is more expensive than others?

1. HAKUSASONSO's tea room rental fee is much higher than other ones.
2. The experience is held in one of the hidden locations in Kyoto, where tourists and even Kyoto locals can rarely experience a tea ceremony there. The tea room is not open to the public and Kyoto's invitation only culture.
3. You can enjoy the tea ceremony experience while admiring the spectacular garden view from the tea room.
4.Encountering quiet Kyoto and authentic Japanese culture. The quiet place, even though it is located near the tourist attraction as Silver Pavilion and Philosopher's Path.
5. The garden, designed by HASHIMOTO KANSETSU, one of the most famous painters of the 20th century, has been selected as a national place of scenic beauty.
6. There is an art museum in the garden, where you can look at his art works of HASHIMOTO KANSETSU.
7. A favorite place of Ryuichi Sakamoto and successive French Presidents.
8. While other tea rooms in Kyoto allow visitors to stay only one hour, Hakusasnso allows visitors to enjoy the garden and museum until 17:00.
