Travel Guide - Meimei-an Tea House


Meimei-an is a tea house built in 1779 at the request of the Matsue's 7th feudal lord, Matsudaira Harusato for his subordinate. He was also called Matsudaira Fumai as a famed tea master and developed his Fumai-ryu style of tea ceremony in the late 18th century. He often visited the tea house, and the calligraphy hung on the wall of its tea-ceremony room was written by Fumai himself.
The thatched-roof tea house stands on a hill commanding a fine view of Matsue Castle was moved to its present site in 1966 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Fumai's death. Look for the steep steps up from the road to the tea house to sample some Matcha green tea and look over the well-kept gardens.
