Dear Midorikai Alumni/ae,
There is an exciting event coming up in October, only three months away!
Hounsai Daisosho sama will visit Helsinki in October to celebrate 100 years of diplomatic relations between Japan and Finland as well as the 30th anniversary of the Chado Urasenke Tankokai Finland Association.
The two-day event will take place October 11-12. On Friday, October 11, in downtown Helsinki, the celebrations will begin with public activities including an Offering of Tea for Peace, a lecture by Daisosho sama, and other commemorative events.
On Saturday, October 12, activities will move to World Heritage site Suomenlinna Island. The Urasenke Tankokai Finland Association will host a series of chakai in the Tokuyuan tearoom.
Nearby on the island UMAA has been honored to be asked to host an usucha chakai. Daisosho sama would love to see as many alumni as possible on the host side.
Please contact us to join the other alumni hosts at this chakai!
