The place of meeting
The castle organizes tea ceremonies in cooperation with the Urasenke Tea School Kyoto. For the Midsummer Remise, there is a small tea ceremony adapted to the character of the event. There is a tea room in the castle (there is also coffee) where visitors are welcomed.
Behind the castle and next to the building is the "Japanese Grove" (nihon no mori = sacred grove of Japan). In it, the vegetation of Mecklenburg Switzerland is fused with Japanese plants. Stone settings, wickerwork walls, as they are common among the Ainu, from whom Professor Johann Heinrich Radeloff learned this technique, tori-i structure and divide the sacred grove.
It is a grove modeled after the Shinto groves. In it, the spirit, the breath that pervades everything, and the spirits, everything that moves the world, have their place. A place of mental and spiritual tolerance and diversity. It is a quiet and deeply meditative place, but it also hosts events on and off the stage several times a year.
