“Namaste”
Review of Japan House

Japan House
Reviewed 31 August 2012

i went to one of the tea ceremonies back in March. This is a must do if you are ever in this area!!! If you want a taste of Japan, this is it! The people were so gracious, as most people are here in central illinois. BUt this is a special kind of nice. Being a buddhist myself, i know the real thing when i see it and feel it. i treasure my experience there and hope that others go feel and see it too. They have lovely grounds and a zen garden in front.

This attraction is right next to the ARBORETUM so take in both attractions then go across the street to the campus.
Attractions are hard to find in Champaign/Urbana so if you have to get out these are two of the best, however the University Campus offers alot to see and this in my opion is the star attraction in the area along with the ginger bread houses and their gardens in the historical district which is maybe two blocks from the campus.

Japan House, and the Arboretum next door, are a great place for a leisurely nature walk. The gardens and ponds are beautiful, and I enjoyed seeing the wedding parties taking photos there on Saturday afternoon.

The Japan House was a very peaceful place where I was able to RELAX. It was also a great place to learn a little bit about Japanese culture.

I think that the inside of the Japan House, however, could really use more of a "Japanese feel," some areas of it just felt like a big meeting room.

I think my favorite part of my experience there was spending time in the Japan House Gardens. These gardens are open until dusk and are stunning. The area around the gardens is also very beautiful.
