Celebrating 20 years within the Arboretum at the University of Illinois, the mission of Japan House is to bring about cultural understanding, offer exposure to new perspectives, and embrace tranquility in an immersive and experiential environment. Through the study of Japanese aesthetics and traditional arts, particularly Chado, the Way of Tea, Japan House provides an essential opportunity for students and the broader community to gain a deeper sensitivity towards diverse cultures. Stroll through the Sen Cherry Tree Allée where picturesque cherry blossoms appear every spring or find quiet solitude in the Tea Garden and Dry Garden. Call for information on tea ceremonies, special events, and tours. 

When visiting the gardens to view the Sakura (cherry blossoms), please see these tips from the Japan house.
