Tea in Japan: Essays on the History of Chanoyu

by Paul Varley (Editor), Kumakura Isao (Editor)

“Represents a major advance over previous publications…. Students will find this volume especially useful as an introduction to the primary sources, terminology, and dominant themes in the history of chanoyu.”
–Journal of Japanese Studies

“Tea in Japan illuminates in depth and detail chanoyu’s cultural connections and evolution from the early Kamakura period… It is the quality of seeing the familiar and not so familiar elements of tea emerge as a dynamic saga of human invention and cultural intervention that makes this book exhilarating and the details that the authors provide that make these essays fascinating.”
–Journal of the Association of Teachers of Japanese
