The “cha” in our name means “tea,” as our program of participatory art events is designed to develop a “new” kind of tea ceremony. It’s inspired by the kuchikiri ceremony that celebrates opening the first jar of the year’s new tea.
We will be bringing our original tea-related events to all of those living in the Yanaka area, as well as those working there or those who just happen to be passing through.
Please drop by and savor an unrepeatable experience with us!
