Tea house

Beautiful. This tea house is over 400 years old. Hanging above the central fire were lots of fish, gently being smoked. We enjoyed a fantastic morning tea: whisked matcha tea with a zunda-mochi cake (a speciality of the Miyagi region), and a glass of mugicha (roasted barley tea) with cold alcohol-free sake. Delicious. I loved how the zunda-mochi came on its own little piece of slate.
