The club held demonstrations again for the JS2230 Itadakimasu module this year 6th, 7th and 14th March. Goto sensei and Kodera Sensei from Japan was invited to conduct a tea ceremony for the students of the module. This marks the fourth year of our collaboration with Itadakimasu Module. This year, we asked the students to guess the theme of Spring, with the sweets, flowers and kimono that the senseis chose to wear.
The club participated in the annual Japanese Cultural Festival on 26th January 2019. Numerous members of the public got to experience Japanese Tea Ceremony first hand as well as eat sweets and drink a bowl of tea. Coincidentally, the club also had sensei visit on the same day and our senseis came down to watch our students perform Japanese Tea Ceremony and receive a bowl of tea themselves as well.

We had the honour of hosting 8 students and their teacher from Waseda Shibuya Senior High’s tea club on 19 November. We had far more helpers this year, which made the event a more lively one. In a departure from the usual serving of Usucha (thin tea), Koicha (thick tea) was served this time around. This year marks the third year that the club has had this exchange programme.
