Hi, I found a nice event which may happen only this time: Chazz (Free Jazz concert with green tea (Cha))!

This is a promotion event of Yawata city where Shokado garden is. Shojo SHOKADO is an Edo period Buddhist monk at Iwa Shimizu Hachimangu , painter, calligrapher and master of the tea ceremony ( Protected content ). Have you heard of Shokado Bento? The lunch box with crossed partitions making four small spaces is named after his last name, since he loves this style of containers at tea ceremony.

Yawata city is located in the south of Kyoto city, confluence of three rivers, Kizu, Uji, Katsura. It takes about 30 mins to drive from Tambaguchi station in Kyoto and it should take about 1-1.5 hours to ride by bicycle.

Free Concert schedule at main stage in Shokado garden:
around noon Lunch, if we find a good lunch place on the way such as Gyoza no Osho (Chinese pan-fried dumplings) etc.
at 13:05 Shinozaki Masashi quartet
at 14:10 Nakagawa Satsuki quartet
at 15:15 Randy Ingram&Matt Brewer DUO

PS: It seems that Thomas Edison used bamboos from Yawata city to invent light bulbs...! So main theme of this event is the fusion of different cultures, jazz and green tea:)
