Just a short walk away from busy Massachusetts Avenue, hidden on the grounds of the Embassy of Japan, is an oasis of calm and ancient culture. Nestled among pine and cherry blossom trees, sits the authentic Japanese tea house named Ippakutei. Considered the greatest of its kind outside of Japan, Ippakutei, the 'Tea House of a Hundred Years,' was built in 1960 to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the Japan-US Treaty of Amity and Commerce.

Open to the public, no registration required.
