Tea Ceremony

Join in one of Japan’s most distinctive rituals on Saturday, October 27 and see why refinement and subtlety are by-words in Japanese culture. In traditional kimono and following canons of etiquette established nearly 1,000 years ago, a master of “The Way of Tea” will prepare and serve you a cup of matcha, or powdered green tea, and a traditional Japanese sweet to nibble.

The ceremony will be held at 3:00 pm. Because this is among our most popular events at Yume, advance reservations are required to attend. Please RSVP no later than Oct. 20, to yume.gardens@gmail.com, with your name, telephone number, and the number in your party. The cost is $15 per person, plus regular Gardens admission. Members of Yume Japanese Gardens pay only the ceremony attendance fee. If you must later cancel your reservation, please notify us as soon as possible, so that we may accommodate others who wish to participate. Not intended for children under 15.

For this event, please park in the lot behind our main gate on North Alvernon Way, or on East Justin Lane, one half block south of Yume. Parking is NOT permitted on East Hampton Place, on the north side of the Gardens.
