When and why is the fukusa left in the room in Irekodate? The only other temae I know of in which the fukusa is left behind is kinin-date, but that kind of makes sense as the chashaku (tea-scoop) is placed ontop of it. However I can’t see any similar reasons for Irekodate

Irekodate is done so all the odougu can be brought in at one time.  This is a good temae for older teishu who cannot sit well anymore, or for younger students who haven’t yet developed the stamina to sit for a longer temae.

It requires the use of a tana, but negates the need for the teishu to return to the room after the temae is concluded by omitting the need for bringing in the mizutsugi by placing the teishu’s folded fukusa on the lid of the mizusashi.

    The fukusa says nothing will be added to the mizusashi.
