23.09.18: Japanese Tea ceremony beside the pond

The Japan-Norway Society and Ekeberg Sculpture Park are pleased to invite to Japanese Tea Ceremony in the beautiful forest. We hold 3 different tea ceremonies at 3 different places in the park, in Pavilion, beside the pond, and on a small hill. Experience the spirit of Japanese Tea Ceremony in the Norwegian Nature!



Sit down and partake in the Japanese tea ceremony by the parks water reservoir. The closeness to the water emphasize how tranquility and purity are two of the main principles in the tea ceremony. A desire to add an element of water to the park led to the creation of this water reservoir, shaped like a calm pond in the forest and well suited for site-specific art. The water reservoir with two linear wooden sides. Where the surface meets existing terrain on the inside of the depression, the pond has been shaped with an organic and natural transition. Urasenke by Håkon Vadstein.
