Ryurei seats of Momijiyama Garden
Taste and enjoy Japanese tea in the garden built in a historical atmosphere, which gives you a sense of a Daimyo garden in a castle all the while soaking up its various aspects.
You can explore the garden which differs with each of the four seasons, and on the way also enjoy tea on what is called Ryurei seats, where the tea ceremony is performed with tables and chairs instead of sitting on tatami mats. In addition, the garden has tea rooms, where you can experience authentic tea acts, flower arrangements, and many other purposes.
In Momijiyama Garden, the Garden of the Village, the Garden of the Sea, the Garden of the Mountain Village, and the Garden of the Mountain stand in a row. While exploring the gardens, you can stop at the Ryurei seats to relax and enjoy a break with tea.
The Garden of the Village.

The Garden of the Mountain.
There is an extra charge if you want to have tea and tea cakes on the Ryurei seats in the Garden of the Mountain. You can enjoy Shincha, tea from the first harvest of the year, Honyama Matcha, Asahina Gyokuro, and tea cakes for 510 yen.
They renew their menu regularly, so I recommend that you check their website every season.
They give you free complimentary Hojicha tea at the end. It tastes refreshing.
I saw a lot of tourists there. You can also buy tea leaves.
It’s interesting and mystical that you can see the skyscraper beyond the garden.
Take a moment to heal yourself by experiencing the history and appearance of the garden from season to season.
