Continuing Japan’s Traditional Culture: Gateway to the Tea Ceremony
—Trial lesson at Salon—
What do you imagine when you think of tea ceremony classrooms? Especially for beginners, they may appear rather formidable places. The lessons look difficult; it must be hard sitting on your heels for a long time; perhaps you have wanted to try but did not know where to go. In the past newcomers basically needed an introduction to join, so it is no wonder that beginners feel overawed. And in this busy day and age, maybe it is also difficult to set aside a fixed hour every week for lessons.
