Visiting Japan House

Whether you are a student, educator, artist or just a curious person, we invite you to join Japan House's many learning experiences, including tours, cultural events, and of course classes.

Ways to Visit

Stroll the Gardens

Strolling the gardens invites peace and tranquility as you experience the aesthetics of a traditional Japanese environment.

Visit the gardens


Open dawn to dusk. You are always welcome to walk through the gardens on your own. For safety reasons, the tea garden with its rocky path is closed during the winter.

Join a Tea Ceremony

We offer tea ceremonies, an art form going back hundreds of years in Japan. It is the highly ritualized serving of a bowl of tea and a sweet to honored guests.

Learn more


Once a week, alternating on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and on the third Saturday of the month during the academic semesters.
