tradition of chanoyu. Introductory visits are offered Saturdays at

EWCC one week prior to your visit to reserve your seat.

CONTINUING CLASSES
The continuing classes are for those who have participated in an
introductory visit and/or those with prior experience. These
classes signify a commitment to a long-term course of study.  
Classes typically have five or fewer students. Tuition (gessha) is
$400 per quarter and due at the beginning of the quarter. If the
fees prove to be a hardship, let us know so that we can arrive at
a solution. Non-resident single class fee is $45. In addition to
