露地ROJI means garden in Japanese. The garden path leading from the tea room. The term “Roji” literally means “dewy ground.” It is expected that Tea ceremony participants leave all their worldly thoughts and desires outside by passing through the garden. It plays the role of transition role between the stressful materialistic world and relaxing tea world.
There is great thought given to the placement of the stepping stones that lead the guests to the tearoom.
The stone basin is where the guests purify their hands and mouths before entering the tea room.
