Juraku-an

In contrast to traditional tea houses, in which guests typically sit in a more formal position on a tatami mat, Juraku-an offers chairs for a more comfortable experience. We serve green tea with hot water boiled in a traditional, pure gold Japanese kettle, which is said to bring good luck and longevity. We hope you will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the view of the twin “Living Hanging Scrolls”.
Admission Fee and Tea ¥1,000 (tax included)
茶室 寿楽庵

Juryu-an

This is a traditional tea house, which was built based on the design of Shokin-tei, a tea house in the Katsura Imperial Villa of Kyoto. Sen Genshitsu, the 15th master of the Urasenke (one of the schools of Japanese traditional tea ceremony), named Juryu-an and using the character, “立”, from the museum’s name (Adachi, 足立). Guests can walk around the garden adjacent to Juryu-an on stepping stones. Sugi-goke (haircap moss) has a beautiful, bright green appearance, and in autumn, red leaves in the maple trees add color. You can enjoy a Japanese bowl of impressive tea in a calm, noble atmosphere throughout the four seasons.
