Journey to Japan with an afternoon of tasting and seeing!

TASTE – Enjoy a warm cup of Japanese Matcha (stirred thick green tea) and learn some fun facts about tea and its cultural significance in Japan. This beverage, both sweet and bitter, is a true gateway into the culture. Tea tasting will be accompanied by sushi samplings and an audience participation poem done in the Choka style.

SEE – The café will feature the premiere of ‘Seeing Japan: A Photo Exhibition’ by local artist Aaron Mannino.  This series of Polaroid images of Japan reveal unique ways to experience the Japanese culture right here in Philadelphia. The white band and faded colors of Polaroid photography have a powerful nostalgic quality. Polaroid seizes "the moment" even better than formats like instagram because it is tactile. Be transported by these tangible images of another world and discover the secret of how they were captured!
