Introducing Tea Ceremony Room

According to the Japanese history, the first green tea was brought around Nara or Heian periods(7~800A.D) by priests who were sent as Japanese envoys to Sui Court and to the Tang Court in China. They brought the tea seed home and brewed tea leaves. Later, the famous Japanese priest Eisai brought home the tea seeds from China in 1191, and started grew the tea leaves at the Mt. Sefuri in Fukuoka pref. Due to the ' Kissa-yojyoki ' written by priest Eisai, it is said that the culture of Matcha(powdered green tea) has been spread to the public.
However, from the architectural perspective, current 'tea room' had been built when Rikyu(Sen no Rikyu) showed in history(1521-1591). Rikyu worked out the simple and modest style of the tea ceremony in which spreads Wabi world. He preferred to use the most basic tools frugally in 4 and half of Tatami(about 9u) or smaller as a tea room. He thought the ideal tea ceremony style was : a host sat down with a guest to have green tea , so that both of them could reach out to each other. He also believed that, to achieve this, it was suitable to use as small and modest as possible.
