Japanese Women, Class and the Tea Ceremony: The voices of tea practitioners in northern Japan

This booklet examines the complicated dating among type and gender dynamics between tea rite (chadō) practitioners in Japan. concentrating on practitioners in a provincial urban, Akita, the publication surveys the inflexible, hierarchical chadō procedure at grass roots point. Making serious use of Bourdieu’s thought of cultural capital, it explores some of the meanings of chadō for Akita ladies and argues that chadō has a cultural, financial, social and symbolic price and is used as a device to enhance gender and sophistication equality.
