Our tea ceremony hut, named ‘Zuisho-an’ by Great Master Hou-unsai of the Urasenke tradition of tea, retains its rare tatami matting layout composed of “daime sanjo maru datami ichijo (three daime tatami mats, measured only three-quarters of a regular tatami mat and one full tatami mat).” The entrance is not nijiri-guchi (a small door) as is most commonly used, but kijin-guchi (a regular large entrance door, used for nobilities) which allows people to enter without having to bend. It is a rare example of a Genroku-style tea hut, of which only a few still exist today.
Visitors are first asked to grind tencha with a millstone and are then invited to ‘Zuisho-an’ to enjoy koicha (thick tea) and usucha (thin tea).
It is a fun and enjoyable experience even for beginners.
