Culture can be a tool to connect with people.

But some of you may have realized how little you actually knew about your own culture when you travelled to another country and were being asked by local people.

For more than 15 years, I have been introducing Japanese tea ceremony to communities I created in Europe, the U.S. and China where I have had amazing experiences when I lived in these regions. Why did I offer such classes? Because I believe Japanese tea ceremony encompasses various essence of Japanese culture. With the tea ceremony I also imparted my knowledge about Japanese food culture and other elements I thought were closely related to the world of tea.
Offering Japanese cultural classes abroad gave me wonderful opportunities to make new friends, learn about their cultures and expand my community. I am looking forward to further introducing my love for Japanese culture to the world and exchanging views with members of other cultures—that way I believe we can make this world even more connected.
