We welcomed a group of Bolivians and their Japanese friends as our guests today. It was a wonderful gathering thanks to the sophisticated and cheerful ambiance they brought into the tea room. Our guests enjoyed today’s formal meal. They showed a keen interest in the ingredients and preparations so our chef explained the menu in detail. You could really see the true spirit of the tea ceremony in this interaction. That is, “Ichi-za Konryu”, where the host and guests contribute in creating perfect harmony.   If you are interested in this post, please check below! Green Tea and Wagashi Delights […]

Two sub-themes were set as, “Why does matcha fascinate people worldwide?” and “What is the essence of matcha?”. Each guest tried to search for answers from a lively conversation with our host at an authentic […]

We recently hosted some VIP guests from Sweden for a tea ceremony at our new venue. It was a highly successful occasion, and we were delighted that they enjoyed the experience. Among their numerous questions about the ceremony, the most impressive was, “How were the series of movements in the Cha-do ritual determined?” Our host replied, “Cha-do employs movements that were considered the most beautiful.” It is said that Cha-do has been able to realize the ultimate beauty because it was developed with a logical approach, eliminating unnecessary elements and establishing a balance between what’s left and the tea space.
