Samurai Tea Ceremony 
"Savoring Matcha and Incense"

The world of tea ceremony is deep and full of various pleasures. Not only do we enjoy drinking matcha together, but we also enjoy flowers and incense together.

June is the wettest month of the year in Japan, before summer begins in earnest, and is known as the rainy season. While the high humidity makes it more comfortable to spend time in this season, it has long been considered the best time to cook incense.

Although it is not practiced much anymore, there is a ritual in the world of the tea ceremony called Kōshomō 香所望.

In this ceremony, incense burned by a first guest is passed around and enjoyed by all participants. After the incense has calmed the mind, a cup of matcha tea becomes even more special. We will be offering two types of incense.

Plus, as always, a seasonal meal will be served and we look forward to seeing you there!
