Chado, or the Way of Tea, is one of the most ancient and revered arts of Japan, and is at the very heart of Japan House. Come to a traditional Japanese tea ceremony to learn about Japan House on the campus of the University of Illinois, and the history of this 500 year old art form. Watch as the host carefully and thoughtfully prepares each piece of equipment so you can thouroughly enjoy a bowl of matcha tea and seasonal wagashi, a traditional Japanese sweet.

Experience a moment of peace.

You will be asked to remove your shoes (or use shoe covers) when you enter, and to wear white socks (we have some to lend you if you forget). We also ask that legs be covered as is traditional in Japan. You will be kneeling or sitting on the tatami mats, but if that is a problem we can easily pull a chair up to the tea room for you, and you still still be at the same height as the other participants.

Space is limited to 20 guests. Reservations are recommended.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month Japan House is open to the public for free tours and shopping from 11am - 1pm.
