Sen no Rikyu is very famous of tea seremony.
I think many people think that he started a tea ceremony.
Actually, Murata Jyuko is the original ancestor of the tea ceremony.
There is a stone monument called “the origin of the Tea ceremony” in Syoumyou-Ji where is nearby Kintetsu Nara st.
SyoumyouJi is a temple of Murata Jyuko.
His time, the tea ceremony was of samurai, but he spread out the way to the people like this style.
Sen no Rikyu appeared after him.
