2016 Chanoyu Demonstrations in Los Angeles

I am getting inquiries about where people can see chanoyu demonstrations. Many Buddhist temples with chado clubs had demonstrations during obon. There are a few other ways to see tea practiced as a demonstration.

I'll begin the list here and continue to add to it. All will expect a donation (usually $5/person for a bowl of tea and sweet. Free to observe; Chasenkuyo includes a service and meal @ $50/person)


  • Varies (check calendar) Hunting Gardens Seifuan Tea House (not usually open to the public) (spring 2016)
  • November 6, @ Zenshuji Chasenkuyo (advance reservations required)
