2018 Way of Tea Program

On Friday, January 26, Wednesday, January 31 and Friday, February 2, the Consulate General of Japan, in partnership with Urasenke Foundation, co-hosted the 2018 Way of Tea Program for local students at the facilities of Urasenke Foundation in San Francisco. This is an annual event that gives students the opportunity to experience the Japanese tea ceremony to deepen their understanding of Japan and its culture.

This year, we had around 120 students from 6 schools participate in the program. They learned about the history and culture of the tea ceremony, the manners involved, the tea room, and about traditional Japanese culture in general.

We would like to thank the participants, their teachers, and the members of the Urasenke Foundation for contributing to this year’s successful program.
