CHANOMA in Japanese, a room where people gather for meals. Originally, it refers to a room used as a reception room near the entrance or kitchen when guests visit.
I have come to feel that such a time to take a break from concentrating on something, and to enjoy a cup of tea while being filled with a sense of satisfaction, is the joy of life. I began to focus on that pleasure, which led me to introduce teacups and tea varieties. How I incorporate breaks into my daily life and how I direct myself inspires new ideas and makes me feel like I am living at a higher level. I feel that by doing so, I can enjoy my work and learning more.
