Our travel tour takes on a minimalistic approach, yet exhibits the deep essence of ancient Japanese philosophies that awaken the sacred relationship and awareness of ourselves, our spiritual connectedness to others, and enliven our kinship with the transient beauty of Mother Earth.
The succinct teachings of The Way of Zen and The Way of Tea infuse us with greater kindness and shift our paradigm to ebb and flow with the divine source of the Universe. When we embody Zen as a way of being, we are honoring life itself as a ceremony - with each moment, each encounter
Our travel experience is thoughtfully crafted and built through a vision of integrating the deep and rich culture of 'Chadoʼ (tea ceremony) into today's busy world. Meet our Tea Farmer and witness first-hand how our tea is grown, observe the sacred process of handmade matcha bowls, delve into the hands-on work of threading your own Chasen whisk, ground in a moment of still with Chanoyu Tea Ceremony, stay overnight at a Zen Temple to learn the art of meditation, absorb the healing magic of forest-bathing, and much more. The high vibrational tea products we offer as a brand and the Artisans who create it are interwoven together to manifest the overall unique experience of this guided tour. The intimate journey we share will open your mind to recognize and accept the deeper truth and nature of life, while allowing our experience to be our ultimate teacher
