I have been teaching “Omotenashi Tea Ceremony” to students and business people of all ages.
I believe that the tea ceremony is very useful for working people and people in business.
I would like to share some of the reasons why.

１：You can train yourself to control yourself.
I think it is very difficult to have a job that is 100 percent yours to do.
There are many things that you cannot do on your own, depending on your relationship and relationships.
In such a situation, the first thing to do is to learn how to control your feelings and emotions to a certain extent.
For example, if you find yourself thinking too much about your problems, you can make yourself a cup of matcha green tea to create a meditative state.
It is very tiring to spend all your time and energy on problems that you cannot solve by yourself.
That’s why it’s important to get a little bird’s eye view. This is important.
If your mind and heart are always occupied, your performance at work will not be good.

２：The wise man learns from history, and tea ceremony has a lot of historical connections.
The tea ceremony is actually connected to many things.
For example, warlords such as Oda Nobunaga loved the tea ceremony very much during the Warring States period.
At times, they even fought to the death over famous tea utensils.
The reasons why tea utensils became so expensive and how the economy was run can be used as a reference even today.
There are many things that can be used as a reference even today, such as why tea utensils became so expensive and how the economy was run.
Just learning this way of thinking will be useful for your business and work.
３：You will learn manners and culture and make a good impression.
It is said that manners change with the times, but I believe that the essence of such manners remains the same.
It’s about expressing your heart for the other person.
From my personal point of view, I don’t think it is necessary to remember all the details of wedding, funeral, and other etiquette without error, but as a member of society, I think it is very important to be aware of the importance of observing them.
So, if you don’t know the etiquette for weddings and funerals, you should look it up yourself or ask someone who knows about it to teach you.
This is a promise and a manner for both parties to have a comfortable relationship.
And in the tea ceremony, this kind of “expression of the heart for the other person” is done through manners.
Whether or not you are aware of this on a daily basis will change your actions and choices.
