Traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony
This show was a very special honor. I was invited to a traditional tea ceremony performed for me so that I could share it with you.
The Tea Sensei Mrs. Ishiguri will demonstrate the preparation for the ceremony as well as perform the tea ceremony.
My friend Makiko-san and her friend Yumi -san will help translate the goings on so we have a good understanding of this very old tradition.
You will along with me will learn how this tradition started many years ago for men only as a way to socialize with friends. In more recent times the tea ceremony is enjoyed by both men and women as a traditional way to spend time together with friends and family.
