The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History
and Culture) are organizing Japanese traditional culture programs with the aim of introducing
world-renowned Japanese traditional culture and performing arts at home and abroad and passing on the
underlying “Japanese hospitality” to the next generations. As part of these projects, Tokyo Grand Tea
Ceremony 2017 will be held to encourage visitors to experience and become more familiar with Japanese
traditional culture and performing arts.
