JGarden Description:Ura Senke represents one of the lineages of tea ceremony and traces itself back to Sen no Rikyu (1520-1591). Rikyu's grandson, Sotan, divided the Sen house among three sons, each founding a school (Ura, Omote, Mushanokoji). The grounds of the school include several fine tea houses and gardens. The Japanese Government designated the tearooms and main garden---considered to represent the epitome of the rustic, thatched-hut style---a Historical Site in 1957 and an Important Cultural Property in 1976.

The web site includes photographs and descriptions of the main features. 




Aoyama Cemetary
Not the snows of Fuji
Nor the auspicious plume
    Of the white heron
Nor the sea-foam of Atami
    Is so white
As the cherries of Aoyama:
    Letting fall
The freshness of evanescence
    On the carved stones of the dead.
