Tairyuken "Shelter Facing the Stream"|
Ennosai built the fourteen-tatami room Tairyuken in 1923, the year in which his grandson, later the
fifteenth-generation grand master, was born. The size of the room can be doubled by removing the shoji panels to
incorporate the space of the surrounding corridors. The toko (alcove) pillar was made from a pine tree that grew
outside the Yuin tearoom. The cloth covering the doors of the cabinet in the auxiliary alcove was a gift from the
aristocratic Kujo family. The altar curtain in the Rikyu Onsodo is also of this cloth. On the opposite end of the
room there are four fusuma panels decorated with a scene of a stream flowing amid rocks and pines, by MARUYAMA
Denne Roshi of Daitokuji temple.
