What to Expect
You experience Japanese culture and philosophy through a tea ceremony.
Tea master prepares tea by highly stylized manner called 'Temae'. You have Japanese sweet and tea in very settled atmosphere and learn spirit of Japanese culture influenced by Zen philosophy. Viewing a teahouse and tea utensils is one of the enjoyment as well.
Since I have been learning Tea Ceremony about 6 years I’m pleased to tell you the history of ‘Chado’ (the way of tea) and its aesthetics.
Koishikawa Korakuen Garden contains ponds, hills and beautifully designed bridges.
As you walk through around a big pound you encounter miniature view of oceans, rivers, mountains, countryside which has scenic beauty with nature.
