Matcha Tea; Buddha & Warriors …

Why are they related ?

You can find out at Asian Art Museum !

So many treasures spanning over thousand of years into antiquity – it’s all mesmerizing.  Just some parts, I can play a pretend-docent about so just ask me about some of the works I consider “masterpiece” or “great works” but other areas, I will have to study up more myself …there are more than 18,000 objects in their collection !

Matcha Tea Latte made with Oat Milk … Feel the LOVE:)

It took nearly 1000 years for Buddhism, originating in the Indus Valley (India &) to finally land in the island country of Japan …probably much earlier but, officially, Year 552.   It was not religion but philosophy that journeyed to Japan where it was well received among the Warrior – Samurai class and took root in the soil of Shinto-ism, Japan’s own spirituality.  Today there are over 2000 temples and shrines in the ancient city of Kyoto alone  (today, thriving City – it’s not a ruin, please) …  BTW, temples are Buddhist; shrines are Shinto … FYI in case you are visiting:)
