Waraku-an Sabo

The teahouse Waraku-an is a historically important building. It is built from parts of the 300-year-old former Suminokura Ryoi residence moved from Takasegawa Ichiofunairi (an address in Kyoto), and garden stones from the same mansion. The teahouse is set in Seiryu-en Garden, which combines traditional Japanese and Western aspects of garden design. Sabo Maeda serves matcha and sencha green teas with sweets at Waraku-an, offering visitors tea breaks in historic surroundings.
