20160115_184300-1

山羊に乗る中国北方の人物文様の回りに椿・梅の折枝や種々の宝物が散りばめられた裂地です。お正月に合いますね。

In this fabric pattern, a man from Northern China is riding a mountain goat.  He is surrounded by camellia and plum branches, as well as various treasures.  Very fitting for osho’ugatsu.

社中初釜 2016(続)・Our Shachu’s Hatsugama 2016 (Continued)

20160103_101918

新年早々社中の初釜を行い、時分時に点心を頂きました。お道具もお正月らしくなっています。

Promptly after the arrival of the new year, our Shachu had our “hatsugama” (literally, “first pot”).  Tenshin was served for lunch.  Because it is osho’ugatsu (New Year’s holiday season), utensils selected were appropriate for the season.

今年もお稽古に精進しましょうと誓いつつ、皆で楽しくひと時を過ごしました。その雰囲気を写真でお伝えします。

Vowing to dedicate ourselves to tea practice this year again, we enjoyed our time together.  We would like to share that atmosphere with you through photographs.
