Welcome and welcome back to CHA-NO-YU.

I honestly think that this site finishes the role of introducing Japanese tea ceremony or chado since there are plenty of useful sites on the net in these days. Now, I have no idea how this page would be. I may not add new features, but I will reconsider and edit the contents.

What's New? / Information

Thank you for visiting.

I am not able to update this site due to my work as a professional student :-)  Some information here is not reflect on my current understanding of Chado.  It takes a life time to learn Chado; that is, my understanding of Chado will continuously change throughout my life.  Please visit many sites as possible from the link page in order to know different perceptions of Chado.  

Guest book

Thank you for your support and great comments.  I am not able to manage the guest book, such as deleting comments with inappropriate words, anymore.  Please understand closing the guest book.  Due to the time restriction, I may not be able to answer all emails.  Although I try my best, please understand it, too.  Thank you, again.
