Furosaki Byoubu is a tiny partition used in a Japanese tea-ceremony (cha-no-yu, sado). It used at the edge of the temaedatami (点前畳, "host's mat") , in a large tearoom. It often separates the host's mat from kyakuza (客座, "guest's area").

It was originally used as a windbreak for the furo (風炉, "portable brazier"). But It has an important decorative function, and divides the space within the room.

*furo-saki : 風炉先, literally "beyond the furo"
