ハレクラニで晩餐会・Banquet at Halekulani

Leave a comment

ハワイ支部60周年記念行事の締めくくりとなったのがハレクラニという一流ホテルで行われた晩餐会です。特に印象に残ったのが若宗匠の祝辞で、紛争の多発する世の中茶の湯の「おもてなし」と「おもいやり」の精神が少しでも平和に貢献できれば、と仰られたお言葉です。昨今情勢が悪化する中誠に心に留め置きたい考えです。

A banquet at a first-class hotel called Halekulani concluded a series of events to commemorate the Hawaii Chapter 60th anniversary.  Especially memorable was the Young Master’s congratulatory speech, in which he prayed that the spirit of chanoyu, represented by “omotenashi” (hospitality) and “omo’iyari” (consideration for others), would contribute to peace – even just a little – in this world of many a conflict.  It is something we all should reflect upon in the current state of deteriorating world affairs.

 

さすがにハワイでのパーティーとあって、古典フラダンスも披露され楽しい一時となりました。詳細はプログラムをご覧下さい。

After all, it was a party in Hawaii, and Hula dance (classic) was a great hit.  It was a wonderful night.  Please refer to the program for details.
