Chado demonstration for Autumn Vibes at Royal Botanic Garden

Date: Sunday, 9 March, 2014
Venue: Herb Garden Pavilion (see attached map)
Time: 11:30 – 3:30 pm on going

We had a great day on Sunday. Sydney Association Members performed chado demonstration for Autumn Vibes in the Royal Botanic Gardens. This is a third year for this event. It was a very hot day consistent with this year’s Autumn Vibes” theme “Africa”.

The venue was a pavilion in the Herb Garden. We set up Misono-dana and many chairs for the audiences. We use Morocco’s mizusashi and sweet container. Natsume is autumn leaves makie. Not many people came to the tea in the morning, but after lunch we had a big crowd. Several VIPs came for tea. Mr. Mitsuo Shojii, the famous Japanese potter, was among them. He enjoyed tea very much with Sogetsu flower School people. Mr. Nao Endo, the director of the Japan Foundation, came as well along with his wife. We performed seven times in total.
