    Each year Raku Ho’olaule’a is preceded with a traditional Japanese tea ceremony presented by the Urasenke School of Tea in the Jakuan Tea House of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, East-West Center Garden.  This demonstration is open to all.

    With a lineage going back 400 years, the Urasenke School of Tea was founded in Kyoto, Japan.  Presently it is a worldwide organization dedicated to “Chado, The Way of Tea” and the four Zen principles of Wa, Kei, Sei, and Jaku - Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquility.  The school provides jurors and guidance in the selection of objects for exhibition in the traditional category, as well as a tea ceremony demonstration , and we are grateful for their continuing participation.
