Thank you for visiting the website of the Southern California Chapter of Omotesenke Domonkai.
This site is intended for Americans and those Japanese who live in the United States who are interested in Chanoyu, its background, and culture, as well as to introduce the activities of our association. It is also intended to keep our Chapter members updated about our activities.
As one of the chapters of Omotesenke Domonkai, we introduce the tradition of Chanoyu and provide opportunity to learn the essence of Chanoyu. Members of Omotesenke Southern California Chapter also learn from Sosho and instructors who visit from the headquarters in Kyoto. We wish to share opportunities to participate in the events hosted by our chapter.
The Omotesenke tradition is not just a matter of forms and styles but also an exploration of the essence of the Chanoyu and how it fits into contemporary culture. We hope that our chapter provides a place to learn, practice and participate in our events.
Please direct your inquiries regarding Chanoyu and joining our membership to the secretariat office. Thank you for your interest.
