Story & Recommendation
Offering the special opportunity for a tea ceremony in Shorenin Temple
The emperor Gosakuramachi had been used Shoren-in as a temporary palace after the imperial palace was burnt by the big fire in 1788. Kobuntei was a historical study room of Gosakuramachi during that time. From Meiji period, it has been used as a tea room, but was lost due to arson in 1993. Warm and kindness support, which were provided by the people around, made it possible to reconstruct the tea room in 1995. And its completion was celebrated by a commencement party. The building was restored in the original architectural form of the Edo period, using same type of the wood material. It is a perfect reconstruction. Kobuntei consists of three tearooms, a Buddhist altar room, and a water room. Kobuntei is open to public twice a year in the spring and autum.
