Japanese Tea Ceremony

Last Thursday, I took part in a Japanese tea ceremony for the first time. The Japanese class that I regularly help with organized the event for its students to experience in Japanese culture. The teachers and volunteer staff wore their yukata, which are traditional Japanese clothes for summer. Some of the teachers brought theirs for the students because they would like to try them on.
Actually, we should wear kimono this season, but wearing yukata is simpler than kimono. Luckily, it was sunny and warm enough to wear yukata.

During the event, the instructor of tea ceremony told us about the basic manners and how to make tea. I'm ashamed that there were a lot of things I didn't know. It was well worth learning Japanese traditional culture.

After that, we had lunch together because one of the students is moving out next month. She and I hit it off when we got to know each other and I like her a lot as if she was my younger sister.
We enjoyed a whole lot and promised to keep in touch with each other, of course.
