Host profile

Michiyo Fujimura
Tea ceremony specialist, Mushakouji Senke Kankyuan, associate instructor

Michiyo was born and raised in Kyoto. She discovered the tea ceremony while she was a college student. Strongly drawn to its profound spirituality and the beautiful bearing of the tea master, she started her tea-ceremony training in Gionmachi. In 2004, she we nt beyond the conventional tea ceremony, which was intended to teach rules of etiquette, and started conducting tea-ceremony therapy to promote mental health. Starting in 2011, she spent three years working on the research and development of psychotherapy using the tea ceremony with the psychiatry department of the Shiga University of Medical Science. She has also been working with medical institutions to introduce a distinctively Japanese method of stress checking and stress control that has existed for about 5 00 years to the entire country as “CHANOYU therapy” .
