Japan House aims to make the beauty of traditional Japanese arts and culture accessible to everyone.

Through the study of Japanese aesthetics and traditional arts, built particularly around the time-honored art form of Chado, the Way of Tea, Japan House provides an essential opportunity for students of the University and the broader community to gain a deeper sensitivity towards diverse cultures.
