- 佐藤 とも子

“Kotonoha (sprit of words)” used to be the word for Waka (Japanese poem)

in ancient times.

It is the beautiful word as it says

“Waka is a Japanese poem created like growing leaves based on a human mind”.

To express the “communication based on a human mind”,

the tea ceremony with the theme of “sound” is going to be presented by unique combination of 3 members; the costume designer, the pianist, and the cook.

We hope you enjoy our collaboration.
