Where you'll be

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. We will also walk along the Kanda River and visit the Sekiguchi Basho-an, where the famous haiku poet Matsuo Basho lived. This little-known area will surprise you with its natural charm and tranquility.
