TOKYO Grand tea ceremonies will be held in two locations in Tokyo, Hamarikyu Garden and Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, to have people share the traditional Japanese tea culture and the Edo and Tokyo cultures that have nurtured the tea culture. The ceremonies are designed with various ideas to provide basic tea ceremony etiquettes to citizens who are not regularly acquainted with the tea ceremony as well as tourists visiting the Tokyo area (English classes available), so that everyone may casually enjoy the Japanese traditional culture of “chanoyu.
