The Yunus Emre Institute London is delighted to host an evening of cultural exploration with Dr. Qayyim Naoki Yamamoto. This special workshop, “A Journey Through Cultures: Japanese Tea Ceremony & Talk on New Traditional Japanese Culture Inspired by Turkish Spirituality,” is scheduled for Friday, 26th April, at 7 pm.

Dr. Yamamoto will lead a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and share his insights on the spiritual connections between Turkish and Japanese cultures. Participants will have the opportunity to taste matcha tea and view a display of unique handicrafts that blend the artistic traditions of both countries.

This exclusive experience will be photographed by the renowned Peter Sanders, capturing the essence of this cultural exchange.
