Summary:The tea ceremony originated in China but was transformed in Japan into an art of infinite resonance with precise rules and formulations. This program is devoted to the Omote Sen-ke school. It shows the uniquely Japanese way in which its traditions are handed down from generation to generation, and demonstrates that suspension in time by which Japanese paying obeisance to a 400-year-old tradition live in the past and the present simultaneously.
