I don't know if you know, actually I'm a student of international school in Japan. In this semester I take a class related one of Japanese traditional culture. The class title is Tea ceremony. There are many international students from all over the world but most of them without USA are from Asia
It's sometimes difficult to memorize how to drink tea, how to bow and how to eat a cake. There are ton of strict manners but once you can complete all correctly, your motion will become polite and beautiful. I have already gotten four skills: the way of drinking tea, eating cake, walking in tea room and how to serve. So I'm on the way how to make tea and how to prepare some goods for making it.
