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 Japanese beauty sense.
It has evolved into a refined and contracted Wabi-cha with a variety of development.
The Spirit of Omotenashi is embodied in the conduct of the Tea Ceremony.
We welcome your participateion.
