Our chado study group is open to the public and meets weekly through the school year. The group is diverse, ranging at times from pre-teens, to students, to adults and to those retired. We have have been fortunate enough to have many students who have made Japan House and the study of tea a part of their life here in Champaign as they pursue their studies. And of course, the smooth operation and excellent instruction of the group could not be possible without the time and generosity of our dedicated instructors.
