During a demonstration on a specially crafted tea stage in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, presented by Urasenke-style tea ceremony instructor Sokyu Mitani, taste seasonal sweets and delicious matcha tea while experiencing the tranquility of this ancient practice. Participants will also be treated to a guided tour of the garden at its peak of fall beauty. This class is weather-dependent and will be rescheduled in the case of rain.

This program, and the Idoshiki Chashitsu or "roaming teahouse," is supported by the Globus family.
