If you're a tea lover, a special event taking place at Tokyo's Gotoh Museum until February 14th 2021 will showcase a range of tea utensils from the museum's collection. Around 70 pieces in total will be displayed, along with full-size replicas of the museum's three tea house alcoves.
During the event there will also be special lectures held on various tea-related topics, including an introduction session to Korean tea bowls, and information on the processes and traditions behind tea ceremonies.
Admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen for adults, and 700 yen for university and high school students. Those who are junior high school aged and below are admitted for free.
