Over the last few day’s a family friend of the Tanaka’s has started to build a new tea room here at Aichi-en. Oyakata has been helping out and along with some occasional manual labour from the apprentice’s it seems to be going well. There is a tea room here already at Aichi-en which, is next to the workshop and where I spend the majority of my time here. An effort is made to keep it clean but, you can’t seem to get away from that akadama dust. It just gets everywhere and hence the why the new one is being built. I’m going to miss the rest of its construction with my departure which, is a little disappointing but, I look forward to seeing it completed when I return. Here it is so far.
It was kind of hard to get any decent pictures with the tree’s and stuff in the way but, I hope you get the idea.
Thanks for reading.
