Tokonoma (床の間, alcove): is a place to hang a scroll and to display flower arrangements or tea utensils.
Kakemono (掛物, hanging scroll) or Jiku (軸, scroll): is the most valued item in the tearoom. Normally, hanging scrolls display words and expressions from Zen Buddhism teachings. The host selects one that matches the theme of the tea gathering. This particular one reads, “Wa Kei Sei Jyaku (和敬清寂)” (“Harmony, Respect, Purity, and Tranquility”). It was written by Adachi Taido (足立泰道), the former chief Buddhist priest of the Daitoku-ji (大徳寺) Temple in Kyoto.
Hanaire (花入, flower container): Salt-fired style. Made by Jeff Guerrero. The flower is a white daffodil.
