Yosuke

I'm the founder of ShiZen Tea , a Japanese tea cafe in Ningyocho-Ninhonbashi. As a young child, I had an opportunity to experience Japanese tea ceremony since my mother was into Sado back then. For more than 5 years of study of Japanese Tea, I have gone to many tea farms and tea factory around Japan. Through the study, I have gained concrete knowledge of Japanese tea and been certified as the Japanese Tea Adviser. We specialize in how to brew/infuse the Japanese tea and have served many customers in Japan through our cafe.

Where you'll be

It will be held at the Japanese Tea Cafe "ShiZen Tea." The building will be a renovated resident house that is over 100 years old. It is located in a place that is very hard to find, for that reason we will meet at the exit of the station (A5 exit). Then we will walk from there to the actual location.
