Tea Ceremony

Discover the essence of Japanese hospitality in an authentic, intimate tea room.

Tea ceremony, or Sado (茶道) in Japanese, is not simply serving tea as a form of hospitality. It is rather a way of communicating with your guests for better understanding and to build relationships. Moreover, in an intimate traditional tea room, you will find other traditional Japanese tools of hospitality, such as arranged flowers and hanging scroll calligraphy. Each has special meanings. Would you like to learn more about the essence of Japanese hospitality?

I can offer you a private tea ceremony at the tea master's residence in the suburbs of Osaka. Or if we travel to the island of Innoshima in the beautiful Shimanami Kaido area, you can experience an authentic tea ceremony held in a classic country villa built 80 years ago by a wealthy Kyoto merchant.  

I am confident you will gain a good  understanding of  the foundation of Japanese hospitality once you partake of a beautiful bowl of maccha (green tea). 

Remarks: The availability of tea ceremony is subject to final confirmation to the master.
