MEMORIAL TEA GATHERING TO HONOR THE LIFE OF SOTAN
Sen no Sōtan (1578–1658), also known as Genpaku Sōtan, was the grandson of the Sen no Rikyū. He is remembered as Rikyū’s third-generation successor in Kyoto through whose efforts and by whose very being, as the blood-descendant of Rikyū, the ideals and style of Japanese tea ceremony proposed by Rikyū were able to be passed forward by the family.
The program includes Hanayose (flower offering), followed by Ku-cha (tea offering to Sotan) and Kagetsu (One of the several excrcises formulated for Chanoyu training) or lecture. At the end of the program, all participants will receive sweets and bowl of green tea.
