In Japan, tonight is the night that you can see the most beautiful full-moon of the year. People view and appreciate it. I guess we are very romantic. Do you guys have a similar day to appreciate the moon?
Konnichiwa, it’s Kohei. At The Kaboku Tearoom, other people in my party ordered matcha, genmaicha and hojicha. I took a sip of all of them. I thought my choice was the best. Other teas were also good but my sencha was the most distinctive and different from ordinary tea. It was worth to try it.
While we were enjoying our tea, a lady came in the cafe and sat at the table behind us. She seemed to be a foreign tourist who doesn’t speak Japanese. She was asking if she can get some assists to prepare her tea. One of the staff helped her at the table by giving instructions in English. I also noticed that their menu was written both in Japanese and English. I thought they are friendly to beginners and foreigners. If you want to enjoy Japanese tea in Kyoto, The Kaboku Tearoom is a good place to visit.
Try to view the moon tonight. I guess we are watching the same moon, so it must be beautiful from your place as well. Jah!
