東京美術学校の茶道部

大正14年6月6日、東京美術学校において茶道部の初会式が行われました。女子教育には明治期より茶道が正規カリキュラムに入っていましたが、学校に茶道部が発足した例としては極めて早いものです。大学の茶道部では、昭和8年の慶応義塾「茶道会」、同16年の京都大学「心茶会」が古い例とされますが、大正に遡るものは他に例を確認できません。当時男子校の東京美術学校で、工芸に関心をもった学生たちが茶道を学んだのです。

The Tea Ceremony Club of the Tokyo Fine Art School

In the late nineteenth century, the tea ceremony became part of the formal curriculum for the education of girls. However, voluntary societies for the tea ceremony were a later phenomenon. A

very early example is the Tea Ceremony Club of the Tokyo Fine Art School (now the Tokyo University of the Arts), which held its first meeting on 6 June 1925. Such societies were later established at other universities, at Keio Gijiku (now Keio University) in 1933, and Kyoto University in 1941, but there are no other known examples from the 1920s.

The Tokyo Fine Art School was exclusively for men at that time, and the society was founded by students with an interest in crafts.
