Our way of tea (the philosophy)

The posture of “laddle as mirror (Kagami Bishaku, 鏡柄杓)”


我們對茶道的禪修境界,是佛法中所提出的”色即是空”真理. 我們亦對保育歷史文化, 開創及改進抱持開放的態度.

We create and challange with spirits of finding and solution to conserve the history and tradition, as we bear the way of tea as an ascetic practice in our mind with the heart of form of emptyness.


私たちの茶は、お客様・仲介者様・千利休の哲学・一休禅師の悟り・師匠の教え・茶園・茶屋・各茶道具師・茶室・国・歴史・伝統があって、はじめて成立します。 彼ら一人一人に対する尊敬の念を忘れず、感謝の気持ちを持ちつつ、たった一服の茶にこれまでの修行の全てを捧げ、お客様のお手元に運びます。 そしてお客様と時間・空間を分かち合い、互いに喜び合える茶の道を進んでまいります。

我們首創的茶道, 由每位客人, 中介, 茶聖千利休的哲學, 一休禪師的悟道, 師匠的教授, 茶園, 茶屋, 各茶道具師, 茶室, 國家, 歷史, 傳統 都是我們永不忘記及尊敬的.  在此希望能方便了每一位對茶道感興趣的客人都易於體會茶道, 亦確保有充裕的時間和空間去感受娛悅茶道的樂趣.

Our tea ceremony is not executed until with the “guests”, “agents”, philosophy of Rikyu, awakening of Ikkyu, teachings of our master & mistress, tea farmers, tea wholesalers, each tea tool creators, tea chambers, our country and nation, history, and tradition.  We never forget to respect and thank them, then we bring a bowl of tea which poured our all of ascetic practice since we had.  Then we keep walk the way of tea that shares the time, space, and happiness with our guests.
