From a  campus email announcement…

On Thursday, April 7, Erin Nelson, Associate Director of Japan Study at Earlham College and a long time resident of Japan will give a demonstration of the Japanese Tea Ceremony in Detchon 209 at 4:15 PM. The ceremony is free and open to everybody.

Please plan on attending this event to see first hand the intricacies of the Japanese Way of Tea. There is no Western equivalent to this intricate ceremony. You must see it to begin to understand why Japan is truly a special nation!

The Department of Modern Languages and the Asian Studies Program jointly sponsor this event.
