On Sunday we gave chado demonstrations at the Sutherland Coffee Festival. There were many food and coffee stalls in a park. We set up misono-dana in the Japanese garden that Sutherland sister city’s Chuo-ku donated. It was a warm day and many people turned up.
We did chado demonstrations ten times between 10 am and 4 pm. Anthony explained energetically as usual, and Mikako, Megumi and Masako did temae and hanto. Keiko Hosoda did hanto too. Chado demonstration caught many peoples’ interest, but tasting matcha is less attractive because of the hot weather.
