Beautiful place for a tea ceremony. Natural feeling for the HDR, I like it.

Monique from Netherlands

It looks so peaceful!
I don't know what is in the cup or on the plate, but I would love to have lunch in that spot, beautiful ambiance!

5 Feb 2010 3:25pm

@Monique: Japanese green tea in the cup and a sweet on the plate. They serve tea at a Zen temple, but maybe rarely lunch. I would like to have lunch there, too. Thank you.

A delicious bowl of green tea and a small cake to accompany it. It is made with red beans? In my house lived a few years Keiko, a Japanese lady. From her I learned many of their customs including the tea ceremony. She did the cakes at home.
Now I know a Japanese who has a pastry and makes every day. It is tempting for me! They are exquisite! Thanks hiro!

@Fonts: Keiko is a very Japanese lady, I guess. I mean, most of Japanese women do not as she does. My wife neither...

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Hiro
It looks very appetizing and met along for a cup of green tea. The view outside is a nice atmosphere in which everyone would feel comfortable. Color, type the entire presentation, brilliantly reflected. For that I give you 5 stars ***** beautiful evening for you and thank you for all your nice comments. Dear greetings Christel
