Tea experience in the rental tea room "Oenokekan"


First of all, go to the "Oenokekan" rental tea room behind the Tokyo National Museum.

The Senshukan was built as a school of the school in the suburbs of Nagoya City, Akebono, in Kanpo 2 (1742), and was later relocated to Takashi Masuda (Sluggish) residence in Tokyo Shinagawa. It is a wooden building donated to the museum.

You will enter the tea room while the fluttering and cherry petals dance.


Get "Ocha ticket" at the entrance


During the XNUM X tatami mats, two XNUM X people were in a spacious room to accommodate in the room. (Maximum capacity is 18 ~ 30 names)

Tea ceremony by Zen Gardening Maiko


Soon after arriving at the parlor, Maiko and Geiko, who wore a beautiful kimono, appeared with Japanese sweets.


I had a tea ceremony from Mr. Maiko in Kyoto Gion. This is tense!


The offerings were Japanese-style confectionery “Hanagi” and Matcha in Fukujuen. Sweetness of Japanese sweets and bitterness of green tea.

The tea pot is good too ~ it was a good point (^ ^)

The dance of "Gion Kogaya" by Gion Kobe Gibuki

IMG_7865 At the end of the show, Mr. Gei-mai, who had given me a tea ceremony earlier, showed the dance of "Gion Komari".

I enjoyed the elegant dance of Mr. Gei-mai from Kyoto Gion.

The appearance of the dance dance performed in the tea room in Kyoto Gion, which is said to be a so-called “No Ichigen Do Not Disappear,” has been so beautiful and so often overlooked.

Commemorative photo session with Mr. Gei


After the dance is over, a commemorative photo session with Mr. Gei Mai. This is a priceless experience!

When I left the hall, it was completely dark outside. Next, let's go to the garden while looking at the cherry blossoms that have turned into fantastic colors by light-up.

And Yuko Takao, who played the violin in the garden light-up just a few days ago, went to the dinner party and presented it again. I was so far away that I didn't understand my face well, but this time I was able to enjoy the sound of raw Stradivarius very close!

After the dinner party, I came out of “Kuromon”, which is designated as an important cultural property of the unopened Tottori Tsuji Ikeda Edo-Yashiki on the left side of the main gate of the Tokyo National Museum. The night cherry blossoms here are also beautiful (^ ^)

How about a nightly priceless night party at the Tokyo National Museum? I didn't think that I could see the tea ceremony or the night cherry blossoms with Mr. Gei-mai in Kyoto Gion.
