茶道 – Japanese Tea Ceremony –

“Chanoyu” is the way of tea. It means Japanese tea ceremony. Just boil water for tea and make powdered green tea is not the simple thing to do Meaning: Making tea is not so difficult thing to do. It’s just boil water and make powdered green tea and drink it. It’ really simple thing and nothing confused, but you need to know that when you do things that are obvious is the difficult things to do. It’s just boil water and make powdered green tea It’s just boil water and make powdered green tea That’s all you need to do but… Cleanse again, the thing has already cleansed clean this is the sympathy for the guests. The guests see it and realized “they really treat me nicely” and feel gratitude Feeling is becoming one And then, along the one of the theme A story begins when you go into the room, check the axis of tatami “Will we.have like this kind of theme and technique today” Look at the flowers knowing that “this kind of flowers begin to bloom” Look at the tea kettle “Kettle is ready. Looks like it seems to be able to make nice ceremonial tea. then the guests sit. Japanese aesthetic sensibility points to beauty coming from simplity not to involve, to omit as much as you can a point to the limit of omission Look “Hyakka” is all varieties of flowers, that’s how to enjoy across to the single flower, in full bloom if possible to imagine tree of Himeshara, It’s great. “Bamboo leaves in clear breezes” Meaning:The words shows lthateaves of tall bamboos were rustling in clear breezes as if to moan from the sadness of parting in June. we didn’t have the air conditioning in olden days we used to live without the air conditioning, there were no heater and no air conditioner. So what we could do was imaging feel the coolness feel the warmness, ingenuity that is appear there Matcha is that the olden way of tea ceremony started from China this was a really old way of tea ceremony so even stopped in China. For now, it’s the only way that how to drink to be extracted whether it is Green tea or Oolong tea whether it is English tea or Coffee Matcha is the green tea leaf powdered for tea and green tea powder is mixed with hot water and drink It’s truely primitive drinking tequnic why this way still remains is because we choose the way of tea ceremony if we stop this old traditional way of tea ceremony it will disappear looking at something in where there is nothing that’s the Japanese way of thinking Look at things in a blank, it’s very Japanese way of thinking not to draw closly in a picture like a ink painting, look at “noothing” in a blank That feeling, I want you to know there are gestures like tardy and vexing move it’s actually easonably considered and make every move count like in this closed space in a space cut off from the outside going into myself like a maditation world if you can enjoy more how do I explain, like a depth It’s a self-inquiry so very enjoyable. It’s also a philosophy so I want younger people to have a pride not only changing the form adding on the based old teaching I would want them to explore deeper.

  1. 裏千家ですね!

  2. お点前はとても綺麗だけど、もし裏ならこのお茶碗でお薄は点てない気がするし釜に柄杓をつけるときに泡の音をたててはいけないのでは…何流なのか明記してくれないともやっとする

  3. 武者小路ですか?お点前は裏千家ですが楽でお茶はたてないはずなので……。

  4. Thank you for sharing this beautiful ceremony. Can you please explain why the person serving the tea faces sideways to the guest rather than facing? Domo arigato _/|_

  5. Unfortunately a rather sloppy performance, that clearly shows the shortcommings of the teacher in spite of all good intentions. However, only too common. This is not Chado. It is at best Cha no Yu.

  6. In India we start our morning with tea. Specially in North East India we drink tea at least twice or thrice in a day. In East India specially in Kolkata you can find roadside tea stalls in every corner. We are so obsessed with tea. You can say every single day we celebrate Tea Ceremony here 😊

  7. 茶道の心はおもてなし。

  8. Anyone feels creepy watching this? Every single movements was planned ahead including how to wipe the cup, how to drink… Feels like a creepy show….

  9. I hate rituals or traditional ceremony since they're usually rigid and make no sense. But this is the only ritual I really love!
    Very elegant and have deep philosophy

  10. よく見たら飲み方も裏とは違うので本当にどこの流派なんでしょう?どなたかわかる方いらっしゃいませんか?

  11. これを見て日本に生まれてよかったな〜って思った。

  12. The video "Samura Jack Makes Green Tea For A Whole Hour" led me to search this up and find this video.

  13. The act of pouring your heart into a cup of tea aesthetically for someone else must be the nicest thing you can do for someone and this brought me to tears.

  14. Its a cruel and bitter irony, that the traditions of China past are lost to itself, and are instead retained in our greatest enemies.

  15. I also must say =that the green tea in that video look a lot better more delicious than the green tea that I make at home from a bag – which I basically drink purely for the purpose of caffeine and not for the taste.

  16. The English subtitles are a bit wonky but this is a beautiful video on the nature of tea ceremony. I hope the custom doesn't disappear from Japan. It's very elegant and pleasant to look at even if it can last hours.

  17. It is a bit anti chinese . Which is not so surprising but at the same time quite inaccurate .
    The Chinese do have a tea ceremony still and they do not drink solely Sencha , Oolong, Earl Grey or Coffee . The Chinese drink a huge variety of teas which they drink regularly , including Matcha and the Chinese tea ceremonies (not just one type) still exist and are way closer to the original Wabi Cha codified by Shuuko and Rikyu than the modern Iemoto pyramid used in Japan which is , let's face it, mostly about money and influence or power than it is about tea, whether it is Matchado or Senchado .

    So even though i am a Scandinavian living in Switzerland , and have nothing to do with either China or Japan , i think it would be fair to pay a little more respect to China , as there would have never been a Japanese tea ceremony without the Chinese culture and China must also acknowledge that Japan has protected the original Chinese Tea Ceremony by not being touched by the Chinese cultural revolution and being able to preserve its old culture, both domestic or influenced by its old neighbour
    Yes China has lost a lot of its original culture , mostly due to the cultural revolution and Mao , but China still has a history Japan can't even begin to dare comparing itself to. It would be a bit like the French comparing themselves to Ancient Egypt .
    The French may claim to have the best wine, perfume and makeup brands but the ancient Egyptians drunk wine, and used perfume and makeup long before the French . Tea was first brought to Japan in the 6th century , while it has been drunk in China for 5000 years , so let's get real for a second here .

    Japan has a beautiful and very deep culture , but it is important to also pay homage to the country which influenced it most. And China has a tremendous ancient culture which is part of the world legacy . This silly feud between China and Japan has no room in the world of tea which is all about peace and serenity and i find it utterly ugly when either Japanese or Chinese try to come for the other country and diminish the other's culture like they do it in this video and do it in many Chinese videos as well.
    I am fluent in both Chinese and Japanese and it is always a little irritating to always be given a lecture on another country when the topic should just remain about tea.

    I was taught the Japanese tea ceremony by a very traditional Japanese teacher , who affiliates with none of the schools of tea as he came from a Zen temple and refused categorically the Senke and Iemoto system which, for him, is the complete antithesis of the teachings of wabi cha and he has always made it a point at respecting the Chinese origin of the Japanese tea ceremony . And i was taught three types of Chinese tea Ceremony but a very Chinese teacher who has always respected the Japanese tea culture , and both my teachers (the Japanese one is the one who introduced me to the Chinese one) often have tea together and learn as much from each other as i learn from both of them .

    The true Chanoyu or Sado is a wonderful discipline based on beautiful values and this video and many others on youtube exemplify it .
    But so is the authentic tea ceremony and here are videos which to my opinion exemplify these virtues of simplicity, serenity, peace, communion with nature and rustic dignity .

  18. My how beautiful it is to feel.. A video to watch multiple times. A guide, a way to stop.. and be present. Pity I missed it when in Japan.. but hopefully one day Xx much love Japan 🍙💚

  19. この動画でお話をされている方はどなたなのでしょう?

  20. It would be nice to see a version of this video with out the narration. Just the audio from with in the room.

  21. 手が綺麗でいいな。私手が子供みたいで小さいからって、7年やってるのに向いてないね笑笑って友達に言われちゃいました😢

  22. わびと茶道の関係は何ですか。日本の文化のクラスを取っているから、わからなければいけません。ありがとうございます。

  23. Beautiful ceremony and culture, I get ASMR from this. But why do they use such little water for each cup of tea? It looks like barely an ounce, don't they know tea is a diuretic lol.

  24. 省略しすぎとは思ったけど、これ手順の説明じゃないですもんね…。

  25. I watched a documentary on tatami mats and I learned that they actually know where to put the tea ceremony tools by counting the rows on the tatami….

  26. 日本人だけど畳の上に物を色々置くのは好きません。目に見えないけど舞ったホコリがいっぱい入ってる

  27. I've looked at other customs but the customs of Japan seem very humble, and calm like that i feel very intrigued to experience and try.

  28. 百本立しかない、その昔中国にも存在した茶道今は衰退し、残すは日本のみ

  29. Can an a man learn the TEA CEREMONY. I am in love with Japan's way of presenting the CEREMONY. I used to frequent lots of tea houses in Taiwan and China and sort of learned some of the steps just by watching but I would like to learn formally. It is something so utterly refined. But beyond the refinement it is the PEACE and CALMNESS that goes with it. It is something which is done for the senses. It is beautiful to behold. It is something which should be practiced to hone our skills of perfection, of consistency, and tradition. In this realm there are no qualifiers which can adequately describe what one feels. Even listening to this narrator was an experience although I did not understand a word. That's JAPAN… I have visited Japan many times and every time I leave with a feeling of MATSURI NO ATO and it is that feeling which propels me to go back for more.
