Saturday, April 20
10:30am, 12:00pm and 1:30pm
Hall of Compassion
Lawai International Center
All are welcome to experience a day in the ancient tradition of Japanese tea ceremony presented by the Urasenke Kaua'i Kyoukai tea association at the Lawai International Center.
This rare opportunity is being held in the Hall of Compassion, a hand carved structure true to 13th - century architecture built with the hands and hearts of masters from Asia and volunteers from Kaua'i.
Soothing shakuhachi (ancient Japanese flute) music by Kyle Chew opens each session.  As the tea ceremony members mature with each season, this could be one of the last sessions offered to the community.

Due to the limit of 25 seats per session, reservations are required.
There is a suggested minimum donation of $40 which includes lunch.
For reservations text or call (808) 639-5952 or email
