HiSUi TOKYO is a place where we inspire and encourage one’s spiritual growth.
The heart of Japanese culture and Japan itself, known as “Wa”, is a difficult concept to define. Some believe it represents harmony, peace or serenity. We believe that all of these and more could be included to defining “Wa”. In Japanese culture, “Wa” is the essence of etiquette, enjoying nature and its changing seasons and by extension, showing gratitude towards nature and the food it provides.
We offer many traditional arts such as “Shodo” (calligraphy) and “Sado” (tea ceremony). The Kanji for “do” in these two, as well as other art forms, directly translates to “path” or “way of~”. As implied, we believe that these art forms cannot be mastered quickly, but rather, gradually honed and developed day by day, over a long course of time.
We founded HiSUi TOKYO on the belief that in order to experience a rich and full life, it is important to enhance both body and mind through various art forms like calligraphy, swordsmanship, kimono dressing and tea ceremony.
We believe that through simultaneously learning a variety of different art forms, we can achieve greater perspectives on life. For example, some people who originally started with only studying kimono dressing, also started studying tea ceremony and swordsmanship. Although it is very important to pursue one thing extensively, a wide range is just as important as depth and by learning multiple arts, we can increase our concentration and gain a wider circle of acquaintances through the different art forms. We believe all of this is a key to progressive learning.
To be conscious of all these ideals and trying to implement them in our lives is what we believe to be at the core idea of Japanese culture in its purest form. We hope that anyone who visits or frequents our establishment can find something to help them enrich their lives.
Relax, observe the changing seasons and enjoy some traditional Japanese green tea. The characteristics of the tea ceremony are based on our daily activities. The elegant and graceful movements for rising, seating oneself, and greeting one another in the tea ceremony will become second nature.
We offer professional guidance to everyone, regardless of gender or experience. From people who are looking to explore their spirituality or expand their skill set and to those who just want to relieve some daily stress or exercise. Swordsmanship Instructor certification courses are also available.
