Ungetsuan, the tea hut
In the grounds of Galleri Aakern Art Gallery in Kongsberg, Norway, Ungetsuan is built by a pond with water lilies and carps, surrounded by a Japanese style garden.
The name of Ungetsuan was picked from a classical poem, meaning the hut beneath drifting clouds and the moon.
When the art gallery shows exhibitions, the garden and the tea hut is also open for the public.
During the summer and autumn seasons, the Ungetsuan tea hut is occasionally used for tea gatherings for the Chado Urasenke Tankokai Norway Association, and for other groups and guests who ask for this special experience.
