Experience the atmosphere of the bygone era of the Azuchi-Momoyama period.
HiSUi TOKYO’s tea room, “Suian”, is modeled after teahouses in the late 16th century’s “Azuchi-Momoyama” period. This was the period made famous by some of the most powerful samurai warlords, Nobunaga Oda and Hideoyoshi Toyotomi. Partly due to policies put into place by Nobunaga Oda, and the gradual weakening of Buddhism, the Azuchi-Momoyama period was the era where a culture of wealth and luxury flourished. This culture which is now known as “Azuchi-Momoyama culture” started as a casual enjoyment of tea among the wealthy, but evolved into the fine craft of the tea ceremony.
HiSUi TOKYO’s training room incorporates the same Azuchi-Momoyama period’s atmosphere as our tea room. Training halls from this period were designed for formal training where students could focus on practicing their art. Whether it is wearing a kimono, writing Japanese calligraphy or practicing the art of cutting with a Japanese sword, you can enjoy learning any of these cultural art forms in the same glorious atmosphere that Nobunaga Oda and Hideyoshi Toyotomi experienced in the past.
Here at HiSUi TOKYO, we believe in providing the highest quality experience of Japanese culture.
