Chabako - Otemaes para fazer em viagens

CHABAKO LICENSE box for tea utensils


Gengensai, the 11th iemoto, created a series of four temae using small utensils that can be carried in a box. The portable character of the chabako makes these temae ideal for outdoor tea gatherings. Each of the four temae corresponds to a season: Unohana is performed in summer, Tsuki in fall while viewing the moon, Yuki in winter while enjoying the snow, and Hana in spring during flower viewing season.

Unohana  (Verao) + Facil

Com bandeja

Hana (Flor) primavera (Com Bandeja)



Yuki (neve) - inverno (sem Bandeja)



Tsuki  (Lua) - outono + dificil


The two final procedures in the chabako series created by Tantansai, the 14th iemoto, use different containers than the chabako just described.

Wakeidate - harmony and respect/procedure

Wakeidate was created for the retired iemoto Hounsai when he went to 2 World War. At the time it was called by another name indicating it was a chabako temae for the battlefield. Today its name has been changed to mean, "making tea with harmony and respect."
This temae uses two Chawan, which are stacked on top of each other inside the Chabako.

When placing out the tea bowl for the guests it is not placed on top of a Kobukusa as in the other Chabako

Shikishidate square poem board/procedure

A special wicker basket (Gosho-kago) is taken in the Sen-house from the imperial palace in Kyoto, where it was an ordinary item in use. Later it was created a complicated procedure for serving Tea with that box, named Shikishi-date. This procedure is devoted to the squared card-boards for writing poems (Shikishi). These Shikishi were very popular during Heian-period in the court when noble people often had various poetry-practices. The name of that procedure figurally comes from the numerous Kobukusa, used in that procedure and spread around like Shikishi-squares. This procedure is created before the last one of the six for out-door serving. 


Shikishidate is the final temae in this series and was created to make use of a letterbox ordered by Ennosai, the 13th iemoto. Shikishi are square poem boards on which calligraphy is written. All the utensils are placed on square pieces of board or fabric to recall the proportions of these cards.
