The 2018 tea ceremony schedule will be announced in January 2018.


Presentations begin at 1 and 2 p.m. Reservations Required

The Seattle Japanese Garden is a culturally authentic site, and for this reason some areas of the garden are not accessible to people with disabilities, including the garden immediately surrounding the tea house. We occasionally host accessible tea ceremonies in the Tateuchi Community Room. Please call to inquire about dates.
