SaBi Tea Arts presents two days of public Kōdō (Japanese incense ceremony) gatherings to
celebrate spring and Asian Heritage Month. Guests will sample several kinds of aromatic
woods then try to distinguish among them in a traditional Kumikō exercise.
Sessions are hosted by a certified instructor of the Senzan Goryū School of Kōdō (Kyoto)
and are limited to 8 participants per session.
