The Way of the Tea, the chanoyu (茶の湯) is a big part of Japanese culture.  The tea ceremony is highly influenced by the principles of Zen Buddhism. A chashitsu is a room specially built for tea ceremonies in Japan. The tea room has a waiting area, tatami floors, a low ceiling, shoji (screens), an alcove for scrolls, a hearth built into the floor, and several entrances for guests and host. Check out KCP’s very own chashitsu!


The KCP Japanese Garden

View Tour

Japanese gardens or nihon teien, are traditional gardens using Japanese aesthetics and philosophical ideas as designs. Japanese gardens avoid using artificial ornamentation and focus on the natural landscape. Karesansui, also called a “zen garden,” usually make use of gravel, sand, and rocks intricately arranged and looking like works of art, such as in the KCP campus.  Gravel and sand are meant to represent water while rocks symbolize Chinese mountains. Some designs also incorporate trees, bushes, moss, and types of water features. Traditional Japanese gardens are often enclosed by a wall and made to be viewed from a single perspective, such as from the porch of the hojo (abbot’s quarters in a monastery).
