Enjoy tea and music at NAKACHO House

Listen to the pleasant melodies of the musicians as you enjoy an enlivening bowl of matcha in the morning or unwind with a cup of sencha or hojicha in the afternoon.
Come and savor tea tailor-made for the occasion by a young tea master.
In between the Music and Tea sessions, you can relax in NAKACHO House as you choose, looking around the building or gazing at the garden.

The music will be performed by the quartet Hyogen, whose members have composed pieces as though spinning sounds together as they toured Prague, Berlin, Paris, and many other cities around the globe, not to mention the length and breadth of Japan.
They will bring warm sounds and balmy breezes even to the chilly depths of winter.
In addition, tea master Yusuke Kanzaki will talk about tea and how to enjoy it.

Come and experience the leisurely flow of time in this house amid a café-like atmosphere, chatting about the music, the areas from which tea originates, and tales of the Senju district itself.
