Japanese Buddhist monks who learned Zen in China brought seeds of tea plant and related utensils 500 years ago.
Such a tea changed to Tea Ceremony in the Japanese soil and climate and by Japa-nese beauty sense.
It has evolved into a refined and con-tracted Wabi-cha with a variety of development.
The Spirit of Omotenashi is em-bodied in the conduct of the Tea ceremony.
We welcome your participateion.
