Japan House is a teaching establishment, made up of a Japanese tea rooms, class space, and surrounded by Japanese gardens. The environment of Japanese aesthetics both inside and outside makes for an immersive experience. Even without taking part in the tea ceremonies, classes, workshops and performances, a visitor can learn about Japanese culture just by absorbing the Japanese influence and aesthetics.
Japan House offers both University classes for academic credit, as well as community classes open to the general public. Although it is not a cultural center for Japanese students, it often becomes a home away from home to Asian students because of its traditional stylings and peaceful environment.
Japan House aims to make the beauty of traditional Japanese art and aesthetics accessible to everyone.
It is the mission of Japan House to bring about cultural understanding, to offer exposure to new perspectives via Japanese culture, and, ultimately, to give our guests a chance to embrace tranquility in an immersive Japanese environment. The very core of this approach, and of Japan House studies is Chado, the Way of Tea. This ancient and revered Japanese practice brings together numerous Japanese arts and traditions.
