Chado is a comprehensive form of Japanese culture. You learn not only the procedure of tea preparation but also about ceramics, lacquerware, metalware, flowers, cooking, calligraphy, poetry, etc. It is a lifetime achievement to master chado or a life is not long enough for it.
 
On 22nd August, we intend to have a traditional Ro-winter-style tea ceremony and a workshop for our guests at RYO-AN-the tea house in Leura, Blue Mountains.
It will be a special experience to try and learn how to make the green matcha tea. We also serve seasonal Japanese sweets.
 
All the guests will also experience to visit Japanese garden and the Shrine from ISE-JINGU* at the top of the hill.
