Our Tea Houses
Our Tea Houses
For more than 160 years since our company was established, Maruyama Nori has been one of the No.1 dried seaweed producers in the world.
Sen no Rikyu (1522 – 1591), the grand master of the Wabi (Meaning “Sober and calm refinement”) school, brought the tea ceremony close to the spirit of Zen. Rikyu considered the spirit of the tea ceremony and that of Zen to be naturally joined (in what he calls “Cha-Zen Ichi-mi”). For him, making tea while engaging the five senses and tasting it meditatively is to have a complete Zen experience. We would be very pleased if you could come to our place and share a moment of joy through your five senses, while finding the spirit of Cha-Zen and Japanese culture through a couple of tea.
Japanese tea house opened its doors in 2003 in the Tsukiji district of Tokyo, next to the parent company Maruyama Nori.
There you can savor delicious green tea in an atmosphere of natural and harmonious Japanese decor.
The Jugetsudo Ginza Kabukiza store follows in the footsteps of the Paris store, and is also designed by Kengo Kuma.
The bamboo-fenced lounge is the perfect place for you to relax and enjoy tea, confectionaries, and light meals as well as our selection of wine.
At Jugetsudo Paris, our customers can experience the essence of Chazen and Japanese culture through genuine aromatic teas.
In the basement tea room, we hold various cultural activities such as tea ceremonies, exhibitions, and sales of traditional crafts.
