big groups

Camellia Flower teahouse can accommodate groups of between 14-20 people at once.

If your group numbers more than 20 people (and you would rather keep your group together), Camellia can offer an authentic tea ceremony at an outside venue. We have carefully selected a handful of venues at convenient locations across the city that can accommodate larger number of guests.

For bigger groups, the cost of the tea ceremony is at a reduced price, but with the addition of a venue fee.


For larger groups, the experience remains the same as in our teahouses.

The entire experience takes 45 minutes. This includes a brief introduction to the history and culture of tea, a traditional Japanese sweet, the tea ceremony demonstration, and the opportunity for everyone to make a bowl of Matcha.


  • 2,000 yen per person + venue fee (see below).
