About the teahouse
The teahouse was built to celebrate a centennial anniversary of Okada Mokichi, and designed by Emori Nahiko, a prominent architect. The name written in Japanese is “一白庵,” and the first two characters put together make “百,” a character that signifies one hundred.
Rustic in style, the teahouse has table- style seating in the front area. It also houses two Japanese style rooms, one large and the other small, in the back, open to the public on special occasions.
