Here you can experience “sado,” a part of traditional Japanese culture.
Sado is the Japanese style tea ceremony.
The host welcomes guests politely with tea paraphernalia, hanging scrolls and flowers. This symbolizes the way Japanese people welcome guests. Such hospitality is called omotenashi in Japan. You can enjoy Japanese sweets, wagashi, that vary through the four seasons with the tea produced in Kakegawa. The beautiful garden in front of you changes through the year as well. You may take pictures of the garden. It will be a good souvenir of your trip. You will also like the narrow path with its unique ambience.
