Before start of the opening ceremony, the head of the Enshu-school of Tea Ceremony “Sado” gave a demonstration. It was valuable experience for them to learn unique manners of “Sado” and drink green tea with Japanese confectionery. Through this experience, they must have understood Japanese culture. They also enjoyed RAKUGO (a comic storytelling art) in English by Mr. Katsura Kaishi. They got an interest in RAKUGO with easy words to understand.

They spent a wonderful time thorough interaction with all of The Rotary Club of Tokyo South.
