We start with a Noh workshop. Noh is recognized by UNESCO as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity”. The workshop will be led by Jun Otomo,a professional Noh actor in the Hosho-ryu style. He will explain various points that will help you enjoy Noh performances on stage. You will also learn basic movements of Noh dance and have an opportunity to examine a valuable Noh mask and learn to hold a Noh fan. This will help you feel what it is like to be a Noh actor. The workshop is designed to be insightful – and fun! Next, you will participate in a Zen tea ceremony as practiced by samurais since the 16th century. We will focus on the spirit of “Wa-Kei-Sei-Jyaku” (和敬静寂), which is the essence of the tea ceremony and also underlies many other Japanese traditions. As you enjoy your green tea and sweets, you will experience a very special sensation of peace and tranquility. We will also explain the history of Noh and the tea ceremony and the Zen way of thinking that inspires them. The workshop and tea ceremony take place in an elegant traditional building located in a beautiful Japanese garden dating from the Edo period. It is an oasis of beauty and peacefulness in the heart of Tokyo.

Dove ti troverai
The workshop and tea ceremony are held at Shoseikaku, an elegant traditional building beside a pond in the Higo-Hosokawa Garden, where samurai feudal lords had their houses in the Edo period.
