Its foundation rests on three acres beside Lake Linton, and is regarded as part on American soil and part on Japanese soil.
The cultural center states that the performing of the tea ceremony fulfills their mission “to promote intercultural understanding and peace through a bowl of tea.” The center features lessons in Japanese language, calligraphy, origami and flower arrangement, and is available for walk-abouts, weddings and photo shoots.
