Omotesenke is contributing to the future of Japanese culture by handing down the traditions of chanoyu that are unique to Japan.
Omotesenke consists of the Fushin'an Foundation and the Incorporated Association of Omotesenke Domonkai. The Fushin'an Foundation carefully preserves the chanoyu of Sen Rikyu, and the 'Iemoto system' ensures that its traditions are passed down from generation to generation. The Incorporated Association of Omotesenke Domonkai is the 'organization of staff' that aspire to the Omotesenke way of tea (Sado) and while studying it themselves, assume the responsibility for its diffusion through society. The two corporations function as the two wheels of Omotesenke, ensuring that the traditions of chanoyu are correctly handed down, showing how chanoyu can satisfy the needs of each period, broadening and deepening the culture of chanoyu and continually finding a suitable direction for Omotesenke.
