Spring into Tea Ceremony Lessons in Shinjuku
Inbound League in Shinjuku offers a range of Japanese cultural activities and seasonal events. A spring tea ceremony event was held in the tourist facility's Japanese-style room the other day.
Although tea ceremonies are often formal rituals with the intention of welcoming and offering hospitality to guests, the culture is also closely linked with the appreciation of art and nature. The sweets, utensils, and interior decor used also reflect the season, as things change in line with the seasons in Japanese culture.
Anyone can enjoy tea ceremonies in a friendly and relaxed way by learning the basics. This time, students from the United States tried making tea and learning the unique philosophy behind the ceremony while enjoying the comfortable spring breeze from the terrace. They enjoyed it together with traditional Japanese sweets.
If you can't make it to one of the Inbound League events, you can enjoy green tea in the traditional style tea house in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, Tokyo's largest and most popular park with tranquil and scenic gardens.
