Haiken in the Chasen Kazari

0

On a discussion with some instructors (Urasenke), we could not get into a conclusion of what and how and if the utensil that is being featured during the otemae should be handled to the guests in the end for haiken. There were some different ‘experiences’: in the beggining of the temae the host just is asked the about the utensil that is being featured and the ‘yusho’, and that’s it – and then no haiken in the end; and the other was taking the utensil back to the mizuya cleaning it, and after the haiken of the chaire/chashaku/shifuku, bringing it back to the guests for haiken, and talking about the utensil, etc. – What have you been taught or how do you do it?

My take on it is that the chawan, chaire and chashaku has a regular time to be handled and views by the guest. I haven’t heard anyone taking it back for a second viewing.

However for chasen kazari you do not get to view the dogu during the regular temae, and I was told that it would instead be brought out in the end after the guests request it.

While we were taught that chasen kazari could be used to highlight anything that normally doesn’t get featured by haiken, in okeiko the mizusashi was always the examplar. My teachers said this was the most common utensil to highlight with this temae. And, in this case the mizusahi, at the express request of the shokyaku,  was taken to the mizuya, emptied and brought back into the room. A clean fukin was used to carry and handle the mizusashi during haiken. We typically used a mizusashi with a nuributa, and in this case the lid was not brought back for the guests.

Unfortunately it has been so long that I don’t remember the exact sequence.

    In Omotesenke this is how it is done. Usually the mizusashi would be the item.
