Tea Ceremony & Tour

Nerima Gardens

Ipswich’s beautiful Japanese Nerima Gardens are hosting a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and tour on the last Saturday of the month.

The tranquil gardens, which are attached to historic Queens Park, evoke the elements of a Japanese style garden whilst retaining a distinctly Ipswich identity through the use of local plants including rare and endangered species. The philosophy of the garden is to create a place of beauty and tranquillity, a place to meet nature and calm the spirit.

The tea house on the water is the setting for the tea ceremony, in which visitors remove shoes and sit on the tatami mats whilst observing the intricate preparation and presentation of matcha (green tea) as it has been done for centuries in Japan. The ceremony concludes with light refreshments.

The tour departs at 9.30am from the entry gates of Nerima Gardens and concludes at approx 11.30am at the tea house.

Need to know – Visitors are advised to wear flat shoes and suitable clothing (the walk is approx 30 minutes). Places are limited and bookings are essential – call 3281 0555 or book online.
