Mrs. Kazuko Sakamaki (Souwa Sakamaki literally "Teacher Sakamaki") invited us to attend a Japanese Green Tea Ceremony which was held at a beautiful home in Abiko, Japan. Mrs. Sakamaki has been studying and teaching the Tea Ceremony for over 25 years.
This beautiful home, owned by a sucessful Laundry Steam Cleaning Chain president, is used for various company related events as well as a vacation retreat for members of the company. The Japanese sometimes refer to this type of home as a "Second House" or "Bessou".
After the Tea Cermony, we were incouraged to take a stroll in the magnificent garden. Although it is much larger than the average Japanese garden, many of its decorations are a common sight in Japan. Click on the Image to enter the Japanese Garden.
