Jumbo Tea Ceremony

Established in 765 A.D, Saidaiji Temple literally means the Great Western Temple of Nara Heijo-kyo, which was the Capital at that time. “”Ochamori”” is a popular but unique tea ceremony practiced at Saidaiji Temple. Visitors are served powdered green tea in an extra large tea bowl more than 30cm in diameter. The bowl is too large to taste from without the help of the people next to you and the sight provokes a laugh for everyone.
