Shointei lies in one corner of Hamamatsu Castle Park. The tea ceremony may sound intimidating, but here, we offer a tea ceremony that anyone can comfortably experience, including foreign visitors. Visitors can also sit on chairs for the tea ceremony. Also, there is no need to wear anything special, so please feel free to drop in anytime.

The teahouse overlooks a lush green Japanese garden, a beautiful space that changes with each season, fresh greenery in spring and red leaves in fall. You can hear the rustle of leaves in the wind, and the sounds of insects and birds. Come and feel the essence of Japanese culture in this space, where you hear only the sounds of nature and the seasons as you gaze at the greenery.
