Admission Tickets

Take part in a Japanese tea ceremony, a formal ritual designed to engender harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility. Formalized in fifteenth-century Japan, chanoyu has been practiced around the world by devotees who combine taste, aesthetics, and manner in a seamless dialogue. Watch local practitioners who have studied in the Senke tradition, which is centered in Kyoto, Japan, and enjoy a sweet treat and an individual bowl of whisked matcha tea.

The ceremonies will be offered at 1, 2, 3, and 4pm, with a limit of 6 participants each. Tickets: $30; Members $25; general admission included. Observers are welcome (no registration required).
