MIZUKAZE tea ceremony
We want you to experience the hospitality of MIZUKAZE through a tea ceremony. For that reason, we hold the table and chair-style MIZUKAZE tea ceremony in the Lounge Car. In the ceremony, we display tea ceremony utensils made by the “Senke Jisshoku”, which means the people who for hundreds of years have made the tea utensils in Kyoto. Enjoy a blissful time while admiring Japanese aesthetic beauty and appreciating the stunning scenery passing by.
Live musical Performance
A violin and viola performance is held in the Lounge Car and the Observation Car during the waiting time before dinner and in the bar time after dinner. The performance, which is adapted to suit the atmosphere of the train on the day, gives the evening a splendid feel.
