Corporate Japanese events

Are you organising an event, conference or a unique corporate team building event?

We know how much people appreciate a new experience through our popular kimono parties,

We will create unique and authentic Japanese experiences to attract customers and leave a strong impact to optimise your marketing effort.

Please get in touch to see how we can customise the activity to what you are looking for. 

Japanese music performance

Create some earth-shaking sounds and upbeat vibes for your launch event or celebration with the Taiko drum and flute performance. The energetic performance will leave a strong impact on your audience. 

The Shamisen player and traditional singer duo can create a lively and fun atmosphere and they can engage people with their performance. Learn more about our performers here. 

Kimono dress-up experience

Be inspired by learning and getting dressed in kimono all by yourself under the guidance. If you think it’s a dressing gown and easy to put on, you’re wrong. Your team will learn a ritual of all the details and steps. Additionally, get them to let their hair down at a photo booth session with some props to keep their memory by printing out the photo stickers.

Kimono models / Geisha models – Greet & Meet

Having a Kimono Lady at your event will elevate the whole atmosphere and guarantee to make your guests feel amazed.

The difference between a model dressed in full kimono and a model dressed in a full geisha outfit is the different styles of kimonos, hair and make-up. Kimono dressing needs to be done by a skilled dresser as it requires techniques. For instance, the whole costume weighs around 6 – 10 kg and to create a geisha look, it will need about 3h of preparation. We have the different types of kimonos from Casual Yukatas to Formal kimonos and Geisha kimonos to suit your event.

Japanese Tea ceremony workshop

The Japanese tea ceremony, ‘Sado’ – the way of tea is a path of integration and peace. It’s about connecting all kinds of people without exception. It’s an essential way to be if we want to live in harmony with nature and each other. Sado is also a discipline, study that involves many years, a lifetime practice that includes four principles of tea, respect, purity, harmony and tranquillity as well as a zen aesthetic of the tea.

We will set up the demonstration area to perform a Tray temae (bontemae). The guests will be mesmerised by the calm rituals of the tea making, practice mindfulness and learn the fascinating history of the Japanese tea ceremony whilst enjoying their tea and sweets.

In the wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, the guests will learn the whole philosophy of the tea ceremony. Under the guidance of the tea masters, all the guests will learn how to drink Japanese matcha tea. We can also style the event with decorations. We can also incorporate with kimono element in the workshop.

Nichibu (Nihon Buyo) Dance Workshop

Do you want to learn how you can gracefully move your hands and dance like a Geisha?

Learn the traditional Japanese dance, a performing art that mixes dance and pantomime, which developed in the early Edo period. It refers to a few dance genres such as kabuki buyō performed in theatre, and Kamigata mai that encompasses the style of dancing performed by Geisha. You’ll get to learn the basic posture, how to gracefully move and how to gently twist your fan in the air to emulate the falling of cherry blossoms. Towards the end of the lesson, pretend that you are a Geisha and perform a dance together. It will be a rare opportunity that you will get to see the Nichibu dancer performing right in front of you. 

Sake Tasting experience

Enjoy a wonderful selection of delicious fine sakes and learn about them.

You will be able to learn and taste the range of 4 sake to taste the sake spectrum; sparkling, floral & fruity, rich & earth, warm, chilled and sweet. All sake is carefully handpicked by a sake sommelier, and each sake represents a different region and geography of Japan which makes sake unique to one another.

Umeshu Tasting experience

Umeshu is a traditional Japanese liqueur made from ume fruit. Its taste is sweet and tart with notes of almond. The authentic Umeshu has a perfect balance between ume extract and alcohol achieved by ageing the whole fruit, with the stone still inside. Umeshu also contains malic and succinic acids. Refresh yourself by enjoying a glass of Umeshu when feeling tired. You can learn and taste a variety of this magical drink at your event. 

Let us create a truly magical occasion for your company.
