Eiichi Shibusawa 's tea house "Mushin-An"

Eiichi Shibusawa, who is said to be the father of the modern Japanese economy, spent the latter half of the year at Asukayama in Oji, Kita-ku, Tokyo.

Most of the main parts, such as the Shibusawa residence, were burned down due to the war damage, and currently only the Akibuchi warehouse and the late Roh are still in their appearance.

At one side of the garden, there was a tea room called "Mu-an". 
In this tea room, Osamu Shibusawa will hold a tea ceremony where Yoshinobu Tokugawa, Hiroshi Ito, Kaoru Inoue, etc. will meet, leaving an anecdote that triggered the reinstatement of Yoshinobu.

A major project to revive this important historical site that remains in Japanese history, "Mushin-an," and connect the spirit of Eiichi Shibusawa to the next generation will begin.




The tea room "Mushin-an" in the garden of Shibusawa House (Aimuraso) in Asukayama, Oji.

The design is said to be Masuda Takashi's younger brother, Katsunori and Kaichiro Kashiwagi, who are also famous as tea masters. It was built with reference to the tea room of the Urasenke in Kyoto.

Aimuraso was used as a place for private diplomacy, and tea ceremonies with knees were often held at the tea ceremony room Mushinan.

It is said that it was possible to see the male figure of Mt. Tsukuba far from the Tsukimidai (Tsukimidai) that continues from the hall.

This quiet appearance was also destroyed by the air raids on April 13, 1945.





Guessing from the few remaining materials of Mushinan, drawings of the tea room began to be drawn.

In addition to recreating the appearance of those days, we will proceed with the revival plan as a place where we can connect the present era and the selfless spirit of Shibusawa Eiichi with the power of "to" and connect it to the next generation.





Mushin-an was a place for hospitality exchanges with domestic and foreign guests.

Zen-an is traveling the world with a tea room packed in a suitcase.

We connect the opposite world view with the power of "to" in "theory and abacus".

The start of the project is the Zenan Tea Ceremony at the Ruins of Mushinan.

Only the sound of the wind swaying the trees and the sound of making tea can be heard quietly-

A mysterious time began to flow as if the spirit of Eiichi Shibusawa, who had been hidden in the ground for 76 years after being burnt down in the war, appeared beyond time and space.
