Chanoyu
The influence of Chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony) on the arts and culture of Japan is far-reaching, and studying this cultural activity – which has a history of over four hundred years – provides an excellent introduction to Japanese arts and crafts. Chanoyu is considered a comprehensive synthesis of the traditional Japanese lifestyle, and its philosophy and aesthetics embody such wabi principles as rustic simplicity, sober refinement, and subtlety.
