Join us for this special opportunity to experience two Japanese traditions: the beautiful kimono and the tea ceremony. The kimono (着物) has become established as one of the more recognizable elements of Japanese culture. This traditional form of dress can embrace many different styles and purposes and is still in use in modern Japan. The tea ceremony — called “chanoyu” or “chado” in Japanese — is at once an art form, a spiritual discipline, a way to socialize, and a window on Japanese culture. Practiced for more than 450 years, this unique way of sharing tea has spread around the world. Come and learn more about these two traditions with artists from Kobe, Japan.
