Thick tea is typical in tea ceremony, rare to see in Japanese cafes. The way of tea is a little different from the light one. It’s more elegant and rare to see also. But if you would like a host to make light tea instead of thick tea, it's possible.
You can take photos for free. It is recommended to keep tranquil atmosphere during the way of tea, but if you would like to take photos, it’s up to you because it’s private session. Also in the next waiting room, you can take photos with kimono or Nishijin textiles before or after the tea ceremony experience.
All explanation is given in fluent English by a lecturer of Urasenke, one of the biggest tea schools in Japan. You can make good light tea of good quality at home after taking this class.
