Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room and Garden

Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room and Garden at the University Library, California State University, Sacramento. The tea room at Sacramento State is one of a small number established on a university campus in the United States. Named in honor of Sokiku Nakatani, a long time resident of Sacramento and Los Angeles, a dedicated student and teacher of Chado (The Way of Tea), the Tea Room and Garden is a cultural treasure where members of the campus and community at large may experience Japanese tea gatherings and share the spirit of peacefulness embodied in the Way of Tea.
