My brother and my friend left Tokyo and Japan with a beautiful last experience at Youwakai.

My friend in particular, who is a karate master and has a special interest in (almost) all Japanese arts and practices, enjoyed the tea ceremony very much.

I would therefore like to thank you for the rewarding experience, which opened to all of us a new window on Japanese culture.

I wish you a very good week-end!

Warm regards,

選評

“裏千家十四代家元、淡々斎の娘として良家に嫁ぐも離縁。波乱万丈の人生への語り口は、清澄にして達見、凛とした潔さをもつ。錚々たる文化人との交流にあって、一番の恩恵は父母の教えであり、茶道を通しての「一期一会」であろう。「この年だからこそ見える景色」を「まず所有欲がなくなった」という至言に敬服”
