Tea Ceremony (Sado) Experience in Tokyo

01 Hour30 Minutes

Sado, the tea ceremony is a traditional event with green tea called Matcha. Tea Ceremony represents the true essence of Japanese hospitality. By observing certain rules and aesthetic values, you will see how true tea ceremony is performed.

Description

With this experience, you will be able to take part in a traditional tea ceremony and relax your mind and soul. 

In the Azuchi-Momoyama period, Sen-no-rikyu invented “Wabicha” which became the origin of modern Sado.

An excellent example of Japan’s historical, cross-cultural pollination, the tea ceremony is an extension of Zen Buddhism and a tradition that has been followed for more than a millennium. It’s well worth taking the time to attend a tea ceremony in Tokyo to learn more about its fascinating heritage.
