Mr. Masataka Hata, President of the Shoyeido Incense company of Kyoto, will instruct participants in the art of incense appreciation.  The Shoyeido Incense Company began in Kyoto in 1705, becoming the world's premiere incense-making company and the preferred supplier of incense to most temples in Japan.

In the early 18th century, Rokubei Moritsune Hata began incorporating methods he learned while working at the Imperial Palace in Kyoto. He applied the court's secret traditions of blending incense, previously enjoyed only by royalty, to commercial production.  Twelve generations later, Masataka Hata continues this legacy, and today Shoyeido offers customers a wide variety of high quality, unique hand-blended incense.

The incense ceremony will take place in  Showa Boston’s beautiful Sanzashi-an tea-house.  A more perfect setting for experiencing the Way of Incense does not exist in New England.
