Green Tea and Wagashi Delights in Tokyo

We welcomed a wonderful couple visiting from Long Island, a suburb of Manhattan, NY today. They wished to experience a truly authentic style of tea ceremony during this visit to Japan. I was impressed by their meticulous attention to detail as I was going through each step. I explained to them how I incorporate the fundamental spirit of tea ceremony, “harmony, respect, purity and tranquility (和敬清寂)” in my practice. They said they were able to see it in my performance. “A lovely memory, thank you”, they said. I felt so happy and lucky to be in this business and reinvigorated my motivation. We parted with warm hugs and kisses and a promise to meet again. Such opportunities to know other cultures and respect the differences are perhaps what is expected from us in our times. I was blessed to have such chance and am looking forward to engaging in more experiences like this one.
