Experience Roji Tea Lounge
The roji, the garden path, which leads from the machiai (waiting room) to the tearoom, signified the first stage of meditation - the passage into self illumination. The roji was intended to break connection with the outside world, and to produce a fresh sensation conducive to the full enjoyment of aestheticism in the tearoom itself. One who has trodden this garden path cannot fail to remember how his spirit, as he walked in the twilight of the evergreens over the regular irregularities of the stepping stones, beneath which he lay dried pine needles, and passed beside the moss-covered granite lanterns, became uplifted above ordinary thoughts.
