Tea ceremony (8th and 9th)

We offer “Japanese Tea Ceremony” at the lunch break on 8(Mon) and 9(Tue). You can enjoy a unique taste, flavor, and even texture of green tea served in a traditional tea bowl. This is also an efficient way for your recovery from jet lag! Don't miss an accompanying lovely sweet stuff, which is also served in a traditional manner.

The Tea Ceremony will be operated by students belonging to the TMU tea ceremony club. Among the various ways of performing tea ceremonies, they are learning “Urasenke” style. Please feel free to ask them for more details about the Tea Ceremony.
