Sakai Plaza of Rikyu and Akiko

A cultural tourism facility that seeks to impart the appeal of Sakai’s history
and culture to the world through the lives and characters of the Sakai born
master of tea Sen no Rikyu, and the poet and pioneer of Japanese modern
literature Akiko Yosano.


Here you will find the “Sen no Rikyu Tea Hall,” revealing the history and culture of
Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591) and the tea ceremony, the “Akiko Yosano Memorial Hall”
where you can touch upon the works of the poet Akiko Yosano (1878-1942) and her
life, and the “Sightseeing Guide Exhibition” that acts as a base for sightseeing in
Sakai. The “Tea Ceremony Experience Facility,” facing on the site of Sen no Rikyu's
House that has such a strong connection to Senge tea ceremony, you can enjoy tea
and confections served in all three of the Senge tea ceremony forms while sitting
in a chair, as well as experiencing pouring tea for yourself under the instruction of
tea ceremony practitioners.
You will also find the “Sakai Taian,” a recreation of the “Taian” national treasure tea
room, the only tea room remaining created by Sen no Rikyu. You can not only take
in the outside but also go inside.
