The person who helped us with this ambitious project is Tea Master, Ms. Mikubo, born in Sakai. She contributed to the establishment of Sakai Plaza of Rikyu and Akiko, a facility where anyone can casually drink tea, and has worked there for 3 years. After graduating from high school, she trained for 3 years at a tea ceremony school in Kyoto, and since then, she has offered special tea experiences not only in Japan, but also in England, France, Italy, India, Taiwan, and many other countries.
How she has served special tea around the world? Let us tell you some of the stories. When she learned English in London, she had the opportunity to offer a tea session in the language school. Also, before the pandemic, she used to go to Taiwan 2 or 3 times a year, as part of the Japan-Taiwan cultural exchange program, which was sponsored by the Japanese company and offered matcha tea and sweets-making lessons. Such activities mean that she exports the profound culture of the tea!
