Currently at chabako license—kinda slow considering how many years I’ve been doing this, but what can I do—slow learner B)
Hayashi-sensei seems to be taking the license seriously—briskly pacing me through a chabakodemae per week, despite my nonmastery of the konarai temae. (Not to mention sumitemae…)
On an ideal world I’d like to:
1) Get chamei, become instructor
2) Own a tea house (haha)
3) Become a true chajin like a boss!
(If I manage to “obtain monbusho scholarship”—is it possible to train chanoyu during it?)
