Description

Recent interests in learning from Japanese business practice and other aspects of social life are being viewed in a global context. The Urasenke school of "chado" (the Japanese tea ceremony) has been exporting its practice since the early 1950s. It provides an opportunity to study the ability of a Japanese art to teach its practice and social structure to non-Japanese. This work looks at Japanese culture and its adaptability to outsiders, as well as the process by which non-Japanese learn to behave as Japanese in the setting of the tea room through the learning of cultural symbols and ritual behaviour.
