Nice! Two comments: I don’t see a single Japanese there, still I’m full of envy 😉 And second, you start with ‘good morning’ so it was in the morning then, I suppose?
first, their teacher was an old Japanese woman and second, is the only “hello” I know in Japanese 😀
That sounds cool, I wish I could see her doing the ceremony. Btw. I just noticed it, but you correctly used ō in chadō, but it’s the same for ohayō and arigatō >:-D
Was the tea good, or were you just a photographer?
More details for you 🙂
– the teacher, the translator, and part of the students (the lady is living for maybe 20 years in Romania and she is married here);
– the demonstration was for a larger audience (and includes some bonsai and ikebana) so no tea for me 🙁
– for chadō I cheated and used Wikipedia, for the others my own memory :p
– at the end I (as the rest of the audience) received a book (in Romanian) “Japanese people about themselves”, authored by the lady and her husband;
– actually I got there invited by yet another student (not one presenting), her (note: the paper says “free hugs” in romanian, the photo is, of course, mine).
