GOSHOBOH “Shohbyohe” (Backyard Blue Cat Event)

This Autumn night, once you step in TOCEN GOSHOBOH, you submerge into a whole new world, where time stops and rules fade – The world of “Ohbutsu Muhoh”.
Heartily welcomed and assisted by the hot-spring lady “ Maki”, you are drenched in ease enough to loose up and joyfully sip some soothing champaign and vibrate to some enchanting music beats while soaking in the sacred golden hot-spring waters.
The mysterious panache of East & West, Fun & Zen, Tradition & Vogue, gets you feel even more amused and “confused ” when you are taken to the hidden zen courtyard “ SHIHOAN”, where you savor delightful cuisine and groove to cheerful sounds.
But…..when the witching hour bell rings,…..lights are dimmed,……and you are literally transported into another dimension of deep quietness.
It is time for the ultimate ritual: Goshoboh Midnight Tea Ceremony.
