What Tea Ceremony and Halloween Have in Common

Halloween is a festival that originated in Europe to celebrate the autumn harvest and to drive away evil spirits.

There are many other theories and histories, but the one thing that all cultures have in common is to pray that the people present can live happy and prosperous lives and that bad things will not happen to them.

This is also common to Japanese culture.

To begin with, there is the fact that the Japanese tea ceremony has been handed down to this day because of the introduction of Western culture.

For example, “taterei” (ryurei) is performed with a chair and table, and it is said that this is because it was actually developed to invite Westerners in at the time of civilization’s opening to the West.

It is something that is commonplace today, but would not be if Western culture had not entered the country.

It is no exaggeration to say that it is precisely because Japan has this blend of Japanese and Western culture that it has created its own unique culture.

Besides, some data show that there are now fewer houses with tatami mats than before.
