Dr. Ryuji Ueno, President
Omotesenke Domonkai, Eastern Region, USA
It is my pleasure to establish The Omotesenke Domonkai Eastern Region, USA.
The organization was established in June 2010 to serve as a meeting point in the Eastern area of the United States that connects those who are learning chanoyu and those who have an interest in it with the head tea master of Omotosenke Domonkai in Japan. As the organization cooperating with the traditional public institutions and educational bodies of the Eastern area, we also dearly wish to deepen its spiritual exchange with as many people as possible through chanoyu.
We are welcome your interest to chanoyu, which shares the spirit of Zen and beauty of nature and hospitality to others. I will be happy if the spirit and beauty of chanoyu that has been handed down in an unbroken line, through the encounters it provides for the peoples of the world and its richly creative spirit, can give us an opportunity to respect each other’s history and culture and to deepen our mutual understanding.
I look forward to seeing you at our various events at New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Florida and other places.
