Seishodo Yamashita was founded in Kyoto in 1847. Since then, we have been introducing customers to the joys of tea ceremony utensils for over 160 years. It is because of the kindness and support of all of our customers as well as the Urasenke School of tea ceremony that we still hang up our storefront banner to this day, and all of us at Seishodo Yamashita are grateful for this.

It is said that the true meaning behind the tea ceremony lies in showing hospitality. This is easier said than done; how does one really know what kind of tea a guest desires? The possibilities are endless. Furthermore, our customers come from all walks of life, some young, some old, some preferring tea made with the traditional tools and methods, and some simply desiring a more casual tea experience.

At our store we adhere to a policy of providing our valued customers with superior products. We stock a variety of high quality goods to meet the requests and diverse tastes of our customers. Through the store’s atmosphere and sincere customer service, we strive to greet our guests with the highest level of hospitality. Furthermore, we hope that even after concluding our sales with the customers, we can enjoy a lasting relationship and continue to serve our guests.

We are blessed to have received precious words of appreciation from our customers, many whom have used our services for multiple generations. As a long-established specialty shop for Japanese teaware, we at Seishodo Yamashita hope that through our daily diligence and perseverance, our customers will continue to trust in our name for many years to come.
