Ikuchi Island, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan—Keiji Nishimoto is making tea. He measures out the green matcha with a bamboo spoon, adds hot water, then whisks it thoroughly and carefully before handing the bowl over to his guest. Ritual is important: lift and cup the bowl in the left hand, turning it clockwise with the right, once, twice, three times. A little too far. Nishimoto-san chuckles, “Oversteer.”

Even given the considerable cost, I know some here in North America who would jump at the chance to put their car thru such a process.
