Our Senseis came down from 24th to 26th January for the first of three annual visits. Our sensei also took the opportunity to perform hatsugama(初釜) during her visit. Hatsugama is a special ceremony performed in the first month of the year and is usually performed by sensei to his/her students. Our students and alumni members also took this opportunity to receive more instruction from our senseis to further improve themselves.
From 8th to 10th June, Kodera Sensei and Nogami Sensei facilitated the practice sessions.
From the 25th to the 27th January we had our senseis visit us to celebrate the new year by having a hatsugama (初釜, first pot of tea) ceremony. At the same time, we welcome a new tea ceremony equipment to the club, the ro (炉), which is used in ceremonies during winter time.
Sensei’s May visit this year was held on the 12th to the 14th of May. Kodera sensei, flying in from Japan, as well as Nogami Sensei facilitated over the practice of NUS Sado members, both current and Alumni, as well as our sister club NTU Sado. This visit was extra special as Kodera sensei also brought along with her a Chabako set, a special Tea Ceremony item, which allowed the members to practice an okeiko which we normally could not. […]
Sensei’s January visit this year spanned from 13-15th January. Kodera sensei conducted two Hatsugama sessions on Friday and Saturday, allowing both student and alumni members, as well as NTU Sado Club members to experience this rare event. A mini kaiseki osechi meal was served before the Hatsugama service. WSSH Sado Club members and their teachers also visited on Friday evening, with sufficient time for okeiko practice.

Thanks to all who chipped in, either by helping out directly or simply making an appearance for Oiemoto’s recent visit. It would not have been possible to make everything run smoothly without you, freshmen, seniors and alumni members alike ^^
We would like to thank all freshies out there who have shown great interest in our club, especially those who came up to us during the NUSJSS welcome tea. As such, we would like to convert this coming Wednesday which we were intending to reserve for cleaning up the room to a welcome tea session instead to show our appreciation for your support. Feel free to pop by between 12 noon and 6pm for a bowl of tea and sweets on […]
