It is the mission of Japan House to bring about cultural understanding, to offer exposure to new perspectives and, ultimately, to give a necessary refuge for all to embrace tranquility in an immersive and experiential environment. 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 College and University and the broader community to gain a deeper sensitivity towards diverse cultures.
Japan House is located near the Arboretum and the Vet Med complex, just south of Kirby/Florida Avenue on Lincoln Avenue. It is easily accessible from the parking lot at Lincoln Avenue and St. Mary’s Road. A short walkway to the south, lined by cherry trees, leads you to Japan House and its gardens. Japan House is open to the public for tea ceremonies and tours on Thursdays and during special events. See the calendar and FAQ for more information and specific times.
