Spring maiko tea ceremony in Kitano-Tenman-guu ②

Geiko is busy treating the guests.
You have two choices! (You have to choose beforehand where to seat.)
Having a tea at the table (like this photo)....
or, at the Japanese-style room (like this photo).

I recommend having a tea at the Japanese-style room.
First,it shorten the distance between maiko and guests.
Secondly,Japanese tea ceremony should be performed gracefully with the traditional ritual,I think.
Table is kind of western-like,I think.

They're preparing teas for guests.
Hope you enjoy Japanese spring tea ceremony with us.
Thank you for reading.
