The opportunity to get a free guided tour of the carefully maintained gardens and the pristine tea house at the Japan House of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a rare one, and a good one, so we always exhort readers to travel to Urbana, Illinois for the biannual Open Houses. The fall one is Saturday, November 5, and, as always, in addition to the tours, it will feature a guest lecture and the opportunity to participate in a tea ceremony. This year's speaker is Professor A. Doyle Moore, who will be explicating and demonstrating the uses of the beautiful ceramic incense holders that are a part of tea ceremony. The tea ceremonies, meanwhile, will be the perfect antidote to the late-fall cold.

Saturday, November 5, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Professor Doyle's lectures to be held at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM

The open house and lectures are free; $5 for tea ceremony
