Sitting in a corner of city’s Furuse Park, Shoroan was once the Furuse family home, but has been renovated into an authentic teahouse.
The teahouse has a small room measuring three-and-three-quarters tatami mats in size with a guest entrance, as well as a six-tatami-mat room that serves as a preparation area for tea ceremony and a Japanese-style eight-tatami-mat room. These two Japanese-style rooms can also be used as a single room. Not only can it serve as a venue for the tea ceremony, but it can also be used for a variety of traditional Japanese cultural activities such as flower arrangement and poetry gatherings for haiku, tanka, and senryu.
The Japanese garden was designed with a waiting area for guests.
The kanji characters that read “shoro” mean “mist on pine needles.” Life dwells even on the thin leaves of pine needles and produces mist, which disappears into thin air. This concept of ephemerality is also understood by the ‘once in a lifetime encounter’ of the tea ceremony. Pine trees are planted at the entrance to the teahouse.
