Hello, I’m Chiaki, the interpreter.
I attended Oochamori, tea ceremony of big tea bowl at Saidaiji in Nara.
Saidaiji is an old temple which has more than 1200 years history.
Since they are not allowed alcohol, they started holding ceremony with tea in Edo ara.
They shared tea with all people visited them, they used a big tea bowl.
Still now, they keep that event only twice a year.
Having tea with a huge bowl with my friend’s help was lots of fun!
We have lots of places you can feel history here in Kansai.
Please come and feel it!
