In the latter half of the Edo period, an old man named "Baisao" spread sencha in an innovative way at that time.
GEN GEN AN It is an important great person not only for the phantom but also for the people involved in the front tea.
His friendship was wide, and one of the people who was devoted to Baisao's sencha, the still popular mid-Edo period painter "Ito Jakuchu" is a portrait of Baisao and two people. I have left a "skull figure" called a portrait.
Kyoto Hozoji , which holds the skull figure. "Gengen-an" is said to have been the last Baisao to set up. "GEN GEN AN illusion" was born with respect for Baisao.
This time, with the understanding and cooperation of Mr. Hozoji, it has become possible to make tea leaves with the thoughts of our Baisao and "Skull Figure".
