Hibiki members are volunteers authorized by the Meiji Shrine. We offer a tea ceremony to people from overseas as a part of the international cultural exchange program.
Thanks to the Meiji Shrine and the International Nodate Association, the tea ceremony is held in a traditional Japanese house which is not usually open to the public. The Meiji Emperor partly designed the Japanese garden and built the house for the Empress.
During the ceremony, a tea host or hostess is accompanied by an English translator and serves a cup of powdered green tea with Japanese confectionary. The ceremony takes about 60 minutes. It costs 1,000 Yen per person. (including tea, confectionary, English translation service by professional interpreter–guides, and admission to Gyoen Japanese Garden). Thousands of irises start flowering.
The tea ceremony sessions start at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm, so please come to Harajuku gate by 10:00 am or 1:30pm . We will take you to the teahouse (about 8 minutes’ walk). Upon request we also offer a free-guided tour to the main shrine before (or after) the ceremony.
We are looking forward to seeing you.

Studio Ghibli’s “Kazu Tachinu” (The Wind is Rising), will be released in cinemas from July 20 this year.
The story is believed to be loosely based on one of Miyazaki’s own manga series, which in turn derived from a work by Japanese author Tatsuo Hori.
“Kaze Tachinu” was originally intended to be joined by slightly darker tale “Kaguya Hime no Monogatari” for a simultaneous release, but that feature has sadly slipped back until autumn this year.
