Mr. Masataka Hata, President of the Shoyeido Incense company of Kyoto  will instruct participants in the incense ceremony known as "kumiko" or "genjiko."   Shoyeido  began in Kyoto in 1705.   Today Shoyeido is the world's premiere inscense 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.
