through the lens of tea ceremony
Traditional Tea Ceremony
is Our Gift to You
It is our mission to make the Japanese rite of tea (traditional tea ceremony) accessible, comprehensible and enjoyable for outsiders of Japanese culture like you.
Our perspective on Japan’s traditional culture is truly unique. Both fully accredited teachers in this Japanese art, Sōsen and Sōshun grew up in Europe. Understanding what it is that the Westerner needs to know, they provide thorough explanations in educated English, in a manner that is understandable for foreign visitors to this country.
The Way of Tea
is a mindful approach to being alive.
