Because of its splendid surroundings, this is one of the most suitable places to learn Japanese culture, such as the art of tea, sa-do; the art of flower arranging, ka-do; the art of incense burning, ko-do; Japanese chess, shogi; and Japanese instruments, songs, and dances. It is primarily utilized by residents of Sakata, but sightseers are also welcome to view this pure Japanese architecture and beautiful garden. There is no entrance fee, so visitors are free to enter and leave the facility. Feel free to walk and look around both inside and outside of this outstanding wooden building surrounded by a wonderful garden. You can also enjoy having bitter matcha (green tea) with an artistically crafted, sweet wagashi (Japanese confection).
