TEA CEREMONY DEMONSTRATION BY CHADÔ URASENKE TANKÔKAI
 Chadô, also known as chanoyu and commonly referred to as the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a spiritual and aesthetic discipline for refinement of the self — known in Japanese as a “do“, a ‘way’. The word ‘chadô’ means “the way of tea. This way called chadô centers on the activity of host and guest spending a mutually heartwarming time together over a bowl of matcha tea. The whole process is not about drinking tea, but is about aesthetics, preparing a bowl of tea from one’s heart, following the concept of ichi-go ichi-e, a philosophy that each meeting should be treasured, for it can never be reproduced. Please join us to this special opportunity.
