What is a tea room?
In Japan, there is a traditional tea ceremony called sado.
The tea room is a room for enjoying tea.
Sado is based on Japanese spirit of hospitality.
In the tea ceremony culture, there is a sense of “wabi” or “rust”.
Wabi-sabi are Japanese senses of beauty, which mean “Beauty within simplicity.”
In the tea room, you can feel wabi-sabi.

I visited Italy on my honeymoon and since then I have come to know the charms of overseas.
I practice English conversation for overseas travel!
I started blogging because I wanted to tell Foreigners who are visiting Japan about the appeal of Japan!
