Kitakamakura Houan (tea room)
This area for tea parties is located in Jouchi-ji Yato in Kita Kamakura. There are two tea rooms—one which is eight tatami mats in size and one that is four. The elegant garden and the well which produces spring water make this a marvelous Japanese facility. You may use the facilities as you please. You cannot hear cars or the sound of people so the place is very quiet, making this the perfect retreat location for experiencing Zen or practicing meditation. Please experience the elegance of Kamakura in this tea room.
You can experience a private tea ceremony in an authentic tea room. In the silence of the room, sharpen your senses and savor the present moment. Experience spending an important time facing yourself with zazen in the silence of the valley surrounded by greenery. After zazen, enjoy vegetarian food from Hachi no Ki, a long-established vegetarian restaurant in Kamakura.
