Dear my loved reader

It took me long time to start to write about tea ceremony teacher even I promise it on my essay about "the tea ceremony"

First of all apologize it and also please be kind to have a look at the essay to understand this blog well. 

Thank you

Feb 2019 Kahori Ochi 

 

After new year tea ceremony "hatsugama" 2009 with Ms Sokei and her disciple (Uchi deshi, she has more disciple but only us were allowed to come her home to study)

 

 

About her family

Ms Sokei Maeda was born in Shibuya  Dogenzaka where is close to Shibuya station as medical doctor's only children in Taisho era (before WW2). 

At this time, still class society and not equal idea. If you were born at doctor house, can imagine how her family was rich. She said never even sharp own pencil since she was surrounded by many maids and they did everything for her.

If she wished, she could go to higher education but she didn’t, neither her parents did not want to her to become a doctor but a Shuji penmanship teacher since they found her talent of it. So her last education is high school but you may know my mother is much younger than her but my mother even could not go a middle school but all her brother went to even high school. Japanese society believed the education is only for men at that time. So we can say Ms Sokei get very high education as women at the time.

Therefor her parents adopted one boy to take over the clinic. Also she said at the time,  if you are rich like doctor,  take care of boy students “shosei”. Let cleaver but poor boy students live their home and give education as well as food necessary items in return they work for the rich people’s staffs (not like maid but more trainee) . We call “Shosei” nowadays disappear but if you read old novels you will find this term. Wiki only Japanese https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%9B%B8%E7%94%9F

It is rich people’s duty or joy to support future important parson, seems Japanese old people felt so.  Her house was full with Shosei and seems some of them were interested in Sokei-sensei since I saw one drawing at her house. She said one Shosei made it. The title was ”ojyosan” hard to explain it but Ojyosan sounds like “upper class single lady” from lower class parson. You can still feel classy society.

 

 

 

About my title

Have you ever read it?“Tuesdays with Morriwhich gave me strong memory.  American real story… One professor who suffered ALS met one old student on Tuesdays till his die and communicate what is life. I learned many thing from Ms Sokei through her tea ceremony education so gave the title.

I have started as Sunday student at Ms Sokei tea ceremony lesson at her house. She thought tea ceremony at many places,  city centers, pubic school etc… Going to teacher’s house class is more special we are called “Uchi-deshi” means is more inside student. She has two class at her home tea ceremony room on Sunday and on Thursday. On Sunday, it is for more young ladies and indeed all singles who has a job. Class started at 1pm and kind of more for chatting as you can imagine. I have a good friend there and love to talk with her and others. However one day Ms Sokei asked me to come on Thursday. At that time, I have been working for my mother’s Kimono shop and I could get day off on Thursday too. However, I know Thursday’s class is stricter and almost all student even have certification of very upper class. If you study tea ceremony for long (around over 10 years), you would get the tea ceremony name from tea ceremony official school and all of them hold it. I was so worried. Why I needed to go there? I was the newest student and could not do anything. I might be disturbed Thursday students. All were housewife and retirement men. Have plenty time but I was not…  However I have started feel that chatting at tea ceremony class was not good. And furthermore, I have started to feel Ms Sokei’s Love. Not only strict but feel something “she wants me to learn real tea ceremony”. So I had accepted to change the class day. Even it started from 9am and end at 3pm (sometime more) on Thursday as well as must make a Bento box  on every Thursday.

あけましておめでとうございます

新年のお慶びを申し上げます旧年中のご愛顧を感謝いたしますとともに

本年の皆様のご健康とご多幸を心よりお祈り申しあげます

 

お陰様で、昨年はたくさんのお客様との再会を果たしました。

お写真を見ていただけると嬉しいです。

リピータさんがこんなに来てくださるなんて、

本当に継続は力なりですね。

 

思えば会社を辞めて、ノルウェーに留学、

呉服屋に入ってすでに12年が過ぎました。

 

訪日旅行がまだブームではない時代、

こんなに海外の方が街にあふれるのが不思議なくらいです。

 

オリンピックが来年に控え皆様には「商機だね」と言っていただきますが、

大人数をさばいて、利益を上げるというのは私にはどうしでも受け入れられない考えです。

 

(実際「オリンピック招致反対で、

ちょうどその時にジブリのアカデミー受賞がかかっていて、

アカデミーが決まる方を願っていました。

ジブリのような映画を見て、日本に来たいという海外の方の方が

オリンピックで着たいという方よりも文化がお好きかと思って)

 

 

うちのお店を利用して良かった、

日本に来て一番の思い出、

そいう言っていただけることが一番嬉しく、

細々ですが末永くこれからも続けていきたいと思っておりますので、

大器晩成と思い、少しづつ会社とともに成長できればと思っております。
