Each year, around March 28th, Urasenke members throughout the world host a memorial tea gathering for Sen Rikyu (1591). Rikyu's aesthetics and teachings are the foundation of Chanoyu as we know it today. This year, we are happy to be holding our Rikyuki at the Japanese Information Center of the Japanese Consulate in downtown Chicago.
