Japanese Tea Ceremony​

 

Authentic tea ceremonies for the public are held on one Saturday of each month, October through July.

 

The ceremonies are presented by Tanko Kai tea group, wearing beautiful kimonos in our Musoan tea house. Guests are met at the Garden's entry gate and conducted to the tea house by a docent who explains features in the tea garden and other interesting facts about the tea house itself. 

*Tea ceremonies require complete silence for a duration of 30 minutes. Guests must be age 12 years or older, as the seating may have other guests apart from your group. The whole experience lasts approximately 1 hour.
