Outside Meiji 1900s Kozaburo Tamamura
Tea Ceremony: The hostess arrives. This image comes from “The Ceremonial Tea Observance in Japan,” published in 1907 (Meiji 40) by photographer Kozaburo Tamamura, and later by Teijiro Takagi.
Original text: “The invited guests are awaiting, in the waiting room, the approach of the hostess. The waiting house is not an ordinary structure; it is especially designed for the purpose, as is also the tea room, and even the dimensions and decorations are strictly limited in size. Of all high class native functions the ‘Ceremonial Tea’ is of the most formal and strictest order.”
