A pine tree adorned screen and other seasonal decorations create a unique space just for the tea ceremony. Gentle lighting and historic items such as a bowl from the BCE Persian Empire, a teakettle from the Momoyama Period (1573 - 1615 A.D.) of Japan, and more combine to make it feel as though you have walked into a peaceful daydream, and a part of history. After the tea ceremony, the master will sweep away the surrounding items, suddenly returning you to the real world, where a Cha-Kaiseki meal awaits. Prepared by a specialist in Washoku Japanese Cuisine, the meal is a gem in and of itself. Dine overlooking the cityscape of Tokyo and the nearby Tamagawa River.
