The tea ceremony is a Japanese culture. Why not try wearing samue as practice wear? Kimonos are somewhat difficult to put on and move around in, but samue, which is the closest thing to clothing, can be worn casually without spoiling the atmosphere of the tea ceremony room. The same applies to sutra copying A change of clothes will help you concentrate better. The samue is the easiest garment to wear and matches Japanese culture very well. You too can experience Japanese culture in samue.
