Munich Japanese Teahouse

Munich Japanese Teahouse


Japanese culture in the English Garden

The teahouse in the English Garden is a unique place that brings traditional Japanese tea culture to Munich. Somewhat hidden behind the Haus der Kunst, the Kanshoan teahouse offers a peaceful oasis in the centre of the city. It was donated to the city of Munich by the city of Sapporo in 1972 on the occasion of the Olympic Games. The teahouse symbolises the friendship between Japan and Germany.

Tea ceremonies at the Japanese Tea House in Munich

From April to October, traditional tea ceremonies take place regularly at the Japanese Tea House in Munich. These ceremonies, which are organised by the Urasenke Tea School in Kyoto, offer a meditative experience and a deep insight into Japanese culture. Here, visitors enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and learn how the art of tea making leads to inner peace.

Picturesque location and easy accessibility

The Japanese Teahouse Munich is picturesquely located in the English Garden and is easy to reach. Take the underground to the Odeonsplatz stop and a short walk to the teahouse.

Experience the Japanfest Munich

A special highlight is the annual Japan Festival Munich, which takes place in July in the English Garden. During the festival, the Japanese Tea House Munich is open all day and offers special demonstrations of the tea ceremony. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience Japanese culture up close and become part of a unique tradition.
