About the event

We're delighted to present a special lecture and demonstration of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony by tea master Soju Nakazawa from Japan with the support from the Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh.

At the event, tea will be served to a few members of the audience as part of the demonstration.

About the speaker

Soju Nakazawa 中澤宗寿 is tea master of the Omotesenke style. He is also a lecturer at Gakushuin Women’s College.

Sojo Nakazawa was born in 1970 in Tokyo and grew up on Japanese traditional cultures. He especially showed a keen interest in the tea culture since his childhood, under the strong influences of his grandmother and mother who were both tea masters alongside other relatives, such as Gonjuro Kawarazaki III (a famous Kabuki star) and Tokuho Azuma (a grand master of Japanese classical dance).
