Sobin Koizumi



Professor Koizumi began working with the Urasenke school in 1975. In 1982, she was an Tea Ceremony instructor at the Kyoto University School of Medicine. In her goal of “student training,” she emphasizes conveying “noble spirit aesthetics,” to her students. In 1994, she was appointed an official professor of the Urasenke tea school. Since 2002, she has been working in Taiwan, China, France, the US, and other countries, including private activities such as “Chidori no Kai” and “Futaba Hakai,” that share Japanese culture and the tea ceremony.

She has advocated for “Introductory Tea” with the belief that the ‘tea ceremony has a  wide entrance and low threshold” and plays the role of “peacefulness.”
