Welcome Tea Ceremony for 2019FW STEP and OASP


On November 24, 2019, HUE held a Welcome Tea Ceremony at Shuk’kei’en Park for the new international exchange students attending the Short-Term Exchange Program Fall/Winter Semester. Students not only participated in an actual tea ceremony, but some were given the opportunity to wear kimonos and to actually experience making the tea.

This event enabled students to experience a bit of Japanese tea ceremony culture and learn the culture of Japanese “omotenashi.”
