Home Visit with Tea Ceremony
- Half Day
Today's activity can begin at 9:30, 10:00, 13:00 or 15:30. Take a closer look at one of Japan's quintessential arts: tea ceremonies. Meet with a tea master in his private residence for an interactive cultural experience. Hear how the master studied for years to perfect the art of the sado, or tea ceremony.

 

Before preparing the tea, get an introduction to the history of the ceremony. Learn about its roots and how the rituals practiced in the ceremony are closely related to the beliefs of Zen Buddhism. Then it is time to prepare the tea. Follow the master as he goes through the motions step-by-step, clearly explaining the reasons for each and every movement.

 

Once the tea is ready, the serving process begins. As with the preparation, the serving of tea is also steeped in meaningful rituals. Before sipping the tea, confectioneries are eaten first, sweetening the tongue to make the matcha tea more mild.

 

After sipping the healthy brew, bid farewell to the tea master, taking away lasting memories of this incredible glimpse into Japanese culture and tradition.
