Lord and Great Tea Master
The 7th lord of the Matsue clan, Fumai Matsudaira, was a central figure for Matsue becoming a town of tea culture. He is locally referred to in a friendly manner as “Fumai-ko” (Prince Fumai) or “Fumai-san” to this day. Fumai is actually his tea master name, the real name was Harusato Dewanomori Matsudaira.
Fumai school continues to the present day
Tea ceremony in the Fumai school style can be experienced at “Kasentei Yuraku”. Guests staying at the inn can enjoy tea and tea sweets served in a tea room facing a Japanese garden. In an orderly tea room where guests may feel the need to keep good posture, warm hospitality awaits.
