Transferable Skills Seminar – Tea Ceremony

Event | November 12, 2018

Finished Nov 12 2018

This transferable skills seminar is intended for international doctoral and postdoc researchers, and will be conducted in Japanese with English interpretation. 

On this special occasion, you can watch and experience Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chado : the Way of Tea).

I-HoP is excited to introduce authentic Japanese tea ceremony to our international doctorates and postdocs. The main part of the event is wordless as participants will quietly observe a performance of tea serving by the master. Participants will be served traditional Japanese confections and Usucha (green tea). There will even be a hands-on usucha-making experience!

Seats are limited, so please register early!

An Introduction to Chado can be found here.
