About Kyoto Prefecture
As you would have guessed, I was lucky to find space and a spot to witness and learn more about the tea ceremony. It is a small warm room, with me seated with a group of other tourists in a circle. In the centre of the circle is placed a small stove and other utensils required to prepare tea. In one corner of the room hangs a satin banner with something written in Japanese. Every small thing in a tea ceremony matter, and so does the banner.Once we have taken our seats, a sweet Japanese lady enters the room, dressed in a kimono and greets us with a warm smile. She speaks in fluent English and briefs us on the proceedings of a Japanese tea ceremony and its importance. Once she has given us an introduction, she leaves the room to allow for another Japanese lady to enter the room and prepare tea for us.
