My name is Suita Sosui, and I have been teaching the art of tea for 15 years. When I was 10 years old, my friend’s mother taught me the tea ceremony, and I was completely captivated. It is a beautiful way to have fun and to find deep enjoyment in life by deliberately creating a space of tranquility and happiness to which you can always return. I’ve taught many students over the years, running tea classes in Setagaya and Shinjuku, as well as serving as a visiting professor at Waseda University where I provide tea ceremony experiences to students in our “Tea Club”. My tea ceremony classes a much more casual and accessible approach to the traditional Japanese-style tea ceremony, suited to both modern Japanese people and travellers alike. Tea ceremony brings me so much joy. No matter what happens in my life, I can always find tranquility in tea.

I always want to experience Japanese Tea Ceremony finally get the chance. The experience itself was really good. I like it and learnd a lot. But maybe because we have to change many transportations to the beautiful place, the experience time is very short, there too many people in that room……. I feel so rush, I can’t feel what teacher say to come down and enjoy the tea. See moreSee less
