April Japanese Tea Gathering: Children’s Day

Join the Japanese Tea Practitioners of Durham and Chizuko Sueyoshi for a moment of respite in the Duke Gardens teahouse, where you will experience the centering calm of a traditional Japanese tea gathering. Enjoy the aesthetics, poetry and serenity of this rich tradition over an enticing bowl of whisked green tea and a Japanese confection.

Guests will meet at the Doris Duke Center to be escorted on a 10-minute walk to the teahouse. Seating is on the ground unless a chair is requested during registration.

Accessibility: This is a small group program that takes place seated on the ground inside a non-climate controlled space. To reach the teahouse, the group will travel together on a combination of paved and unpaved paths with some uneven surfaces and moderate inclines. You may also request a cart to transport you, rather than traveling with the group. This program will end at the teahouse. You can choose to return to the parking lot or stay in the garden to continue exploring on your own. Email GardensEducation@duke.edu to request a chair or cart transportation.

Capacity of eight. Children ages 12 to 17 can participate with an adult; both are required to register.
