Tea whisks which are made of a single piece of bamboo are essential to create frothy matcha tea in sado, Japanese tea ceremony. Amazingly all processes are finely performed by hand with professional skills.
Tango Tanimura is a head of the 20th generation of the Tanimura family who produced tea whisks for over 500 years in Takayama, Nara prefecture.
During the program, you can watch the demonstration by Mr Tanimura and try the last step of making a tea whisk under his guidance.
Please take it home with you as an original souvenir after completing your tea whisk.
The program is held at Hyakurakusou, a high-class Japanese restaurant located in the west of Nara city. There are 10 elaborately designed Japanese houses and a traditional wide garden. Please feel real Japanese seasons and the beauty of nature there.
