The practice of Chanoyu is conducted in rooms especially designed for serving tea. This workshop will discuss the features that distinguish a tea room from any other room in a traditional Japanese home, including aspects of the alcove, location of the entrances, and other architectural features. We will look at examples of famous traditional tea rooms and tea houses in Japan as well as some creative contemporary interpretations of the tea house as an architectural form. The slide and video lecture will be followed by tea and sweets served in the Nikkei Centre’s tatami room.
