Tea for Philadelphia Shofuso Public Tea, April 28, 2013


Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is a traditional-style Japanese house and nationally-ranked garden in Philadelphia’s West Fairmount Park.

Shofuso was built in Japan in 1953 using traditional techniques and materials and exhibited in the courtyard at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It was moved to Philadelphia in 1958, to the site of several previous Japanese structures dating to the 1876 Centennial Exposition. In 2007, internationally renowned artist Hiroshi Senju, inspired by waterfalls, donated 20 murals to Shofuso. A viewing garden with koi pond and island, a tea garden and a courtyard garden comprise the 17th century-style Japanese walled and fenced garden.

The members of the Omotesenke School of Tea in Philadelphia invite you to join us for a bowl of tea. With the beautiful Shofuso tea house and Shoin room in the main house as the backdrop, we want to share our love of the art of Tea (chanoyu, the Tea Ceremony).
