Chado (Way of Tea)

Join us for a Japanese tea ceremony presentation by Yuko Kitajima, Director of the Japan America Society of St. Louis. Learn about the complexity and simplicity of Japanese spirituality and the historical and cultural significance of Chado over a bowl of Matcha tea prepared just for you. The event is free and open to all, and will take place at the former University United Methodist Church (across the parking lot from our temporary space).

This program is presented as part of the 2023 Adult Summer Reading Big Book Challenge, featuring The Tale of Genji and The Priory of the Orange Tree. For more information, visit our Adult Summer Reading page.
