Urasenke the 8th - Itto Soshitsu (Yugensai) 1719-1771
The younger brother of the previous head of the Urasenke, Saisaisai, Itto Soshitsu took over at 15 years of age and adopted the Soshitsu name. He was an avid practitioner of Zen Buddhism and eventually developed a new teaching method for tea, the Shichijishiki. It was devised to efficiently teach many students the ways of chanoyu, at a time when many townspeople started to learn tea as chonin (merchant) culture flourished. The Shichijishiki also possesses a game-like character, which made it possible to learn tea in an entertaining way. Another achievement of Itto Soshitsu was that he authored ‘Hamanomasago,’ which outlined the steps of tea making and how to use the utensils in chanoyu. Until then, the methods of chanoyu were kept a secret, oral tradition of the Senke, and while established pupils would write down such instructions, the masters never did. Itto Soshitsu was the first master to break this taboo and author a book. Such efforts bore fruit and the Urasenke became as prosperous as ever.
