Experience a traditional matcha green tea ceremony next to the stunning Japanese garden of Gyokusenji Temple in Tsuruoka City. This is a special experience as the tea is normally prepared in a private room and brought out to the customers. We will be preparing traditional wagashi tea from the base ingredients and will also have special dishes suitable for the ceremony. You will learn about the philosophy and intricate manners of this ancient and fine tuned tradition. You will also enjoy delicious wagashi confectionery treats and traditional matcha tea as you relax next to this temple's famous garden which has been designated as a national treasure of Japan. Following this ceremony, we will tour the rest of this temple and appreciate the beautiful design and decorations of this ancient Zen Buddhist facility that dates back to the Muromachi Period (1450's). I would also be happy to tell you and show you this temple's rich history during our tour, this temple has had to be rebuilt multiple times, but remnants of this temple's past can still be found in every hall and every room.
I am the co-founder of The Hidden Japan, a promotional company here in Yamagata that is dedicated to putting the countryside charm of the Tohoku Region on the map for international tourists visiting Japan. I have lived in Tokyo but was ultimately drawn to Northern Japan for the pristine nature, warmhearted communities, and truly genuine people here who have helped me make a life here in Sakata City. My mission is to share all that I have discovered and come to love here in Tohoku with visitors to this wonderful and yet undiscovered region.
