Professor of Urasenke · Aya Suzuki
Born in Osaka in 1964. Went to Kyoto from teenager and learned Urasenke tea ceremony. Being fascinated by the deep spirituality of the tea ceremony and the underlying philosophy, she moved on to the path with the passionate desire to convey the goodness of the tea ceremony to many people. Not only tea ceremony, but also Japanese culture "calligraphy" and "flower ceremony", also proficiency in the master class.
Hobbies are hot yoga and walking around Kyoto. She think that "to study the tea ceremony is to sharpen the mind and to learn the way of life", so she is working hard every day.
