After 6 years of museum’s opening I held a tea ceremony to commemorate the fireplace in the
tea ceremony room. I replaced the half of the exhibited works in the museum. The guests were
my dentist who has been checking my teeth for a very long time, the old friend of Koichi Nasu,
an old friend from my German times, and the ladies with whom I have been learning tea ceremony. They all supported me a lot to make this event successful. My son assisted me also, acting wonderfully as the host.
The folding screen for the tea ceremony is naturally a work of Koichi. And I dared to serve
German food, instead of a traditional meal for tea ceremony. Because Germany has become
a part of Koichi・Taeko・Yoshimasa. Luckily enough it seemed to taste good for my guests,
and I was relieved. It was a tea ceremony where a joyful and leisuly time went by.
