Tea ceremony in the open-air
Tabi-Dansu

Tea ceremony is held not only in the room but also out of doors especially in spring.
The following photos show Tabi-Dansu that is often used at outdoor tea ceremony parties. TABI means travel and DANSU (TANSU) means a chest.

This is a portable container to carry the minimum of instruments for tea ceremony in it.
The front side board can be opened and removed. Two shelves set inside can be also removed.

When we serve tea on the ground or on the lawn, we use one of the shelves as the tray.

This kama is not placed on the fire but is hung down by a chain. In outdoor tea ceremony party, it is hung down from the branches set crossed.

Under the clear sky, when a gentle breeze is blowing, it is so comfortable time to have tea in the open-air.
