The tea ceremony was absolutely incredible.
"The tea ceremony was absolutely incredible."
The tea ceremony was absolutely incredible. We feel so lucky and privileged having been welcomed in the master's tea room and get an introduction to this important tradition. It made us understand a lot more about Japanese culture. Thanks.

"I am still in awe with the beauty and thepreciseness of the movements of the lady master"
I just wanted to thank you for the experience of SADO that I had through your organization.
I am still so impressed by the choreography and dramaturgy of allthe ingredients that formed the experience, from the arrangement of the flowers,the position of the pot, the colours of the sweets to the succession of all thesteps of the ceremony.
But mostly I am still in awe with the beauty and thepreciseness of the movements of the lady master of ceremony and her kindness and willingness to share the moment with a foreigner like me.Watching her I could really feel the moment as tangible as the sweet I ate.
An absolute rareexperience in these busy days.
Thank you for setting up such an organization that makes this possible.Still stunned, greeting heartily,
