Notice of Cancellation by Japan American Society of Greater Philadelphia of the Nodate Tea Ceremony
In keeping with the CDC’s and the City of Philadelphia’s guidelines for public gatherings, we have decided to cancel Nodate Tea Ceremony on April 19th as a measure of caution. We are sorry to disappoint the attendees but we take our responsibility for protecting our public very seriously. We hope you will experience next year’s event with us.
The Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia is closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation. We take this threat seriously and are taking proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of our staff, visitors, and attendees.
Nodate Tea Ceremony
Unlike typical tea ceremonies, the nodate style is done in the open air, incorporating natural scenery into the ritual. This special tea ceremony will be held on the veranda at Shofuso under the weeping cherry tree. Drink a bowl of matcha green tea and taste a seasonal sweet. Space and seating are limited and advanced registration is required.
Tickets are $30, $25 for JASGP members
