Bifu Nakatani

Originating in China, the beautiful flow of the Sencha Tea Ceremony started alongside Chinese literary circles.

It came to Japan in the late Edo era where it developed over time into part of Japan’s unique and present day tea culture.

The Bifu school makes delicious tea, provides a fun venue, and promotes engaging conversation. In addition to brewing
tea, we create a beautiful atmosphere in which to enjoy it. This includes Ikebana flower arranging, Sumi-e ink paintings,
Calligraphy, Chinese Kanji poetry, sculpture, Inkan stamp carving, tea tool aesthetics, tea ware and crafts appreciation,
incense, literary thoughts, philosophy, history, etc…

This is a healing space. It is a place to escape and rejuvenate a tired body and spirit. Relax, unwind, and let your mind
travel through time with this cultural opportunity. Gain knowledge, culture, the art of “Sencha,” tea ceremony, and how
to create your own oasis for enjoying it.
No prior knowledge or experience is necessary.
Please join us. We look forward to you experiencing this special world for yourself!
