星光庵でハワイ支部席・Hawaii Chapter’s Tea at Seiko’u-an

Leave a comment

2015年2月表千家ハワイ支部主催の60周年記念薄茶席の場となったのが星光庵です。

The 60th anniversary tea gathering hosted by the Omotesenke Hawaii Chapter was held at the “Seiko’u-an” tea house.  “Seiko’u” means “starlight.”

 

This tea house has three rooms for Japanese tea ceremony practice.  The original building was a free-standing tea house presented to the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce in 1960.  It was then redesigned and rebuilt at its present site on the 4th floor of the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii in Honolulu.

貝殻を花入としてハワイ自生の花を床に飾ったり、タロイモ羊羹がお菓子として出されるなどハワイ支部らしいおもてなしを皆で楽しみました。(詳しくは会記をご覧下さい。)

A seashell was used as hana’ire to decorate the alcove with native Hawaiian flowers.  Yo’ukan made of taro roots was served as sweets.  We all enjoyed Hawaiian hospitality by the chapter members.  (For details, please refer to kaiki.)
