【Japan Tea Travel】Shizuoka, Hamamatsu city’s Japanese Tea Room SHOINTEI. Sencha Style Tea time.


Shizuoka, Hamamatsu city’s has a Japanese Tea Room SHOINTEI, which has beautiful small Japanese garden.

I visited Shointei alone after visiting Hamamatsu castle for sightseeing.

Everything was so perfect. Taste of tea, sweets, atmosphere, good weather and beautiful garden.. where I could hear bird warbling, sounds of stream…


They serve matcha or sencha depends on date. Please check the following schedule. 3 Chado (matcha) Ryuha ( I translate it as “club” for convenience) 3 Senchado (sencha) ryuha (club) serving tea in turn.


When I visited, it was sencha day! Usually sencha opportunity is less than matcha as tea room service.

I saw their Senchado tea ware displayed in the room. Beautiful blue and white porcelains. Tea was prepared in the back room. I enjoyed conversation with people from the Senchado club of the day.

Sencha was served in Senchado Style. Tea and sweets are from Shizuoka. They came and refilled tea 2-3 times.

This is Morimono, which is arrangement of vegetable and plants , instead of / in addition to flower arrangement, it is often seen on tokonoma of tea room at senchado tea ceremonies. Leaf was so fresh. Lovely nature was on the tray.

I had very good time. My mind was totally refreshed when coming out of the Tea room. I realized power of tea (ceremony) again…
