Known as the hallmark of tea house design, the Japanese tea house is more than just a building. With an emphasis on purity, simplicity and tranquility, the tea house serves as a serene setting for quiet reflection. Traditionally, the tea house was used as a place to perform an authentic Japanese Tea Ceremony. Today, however, more and more people have become interested in the tea house for its aesthetic beauty and distinctive design features.

A Japanese tea house can be a unique alternative to the typical garden gazebo or cabana style structure seen today. Whether you’re creating an entire Japanese landscaping theme, or just looking to create a cozy backyard getaway, a tea house may be just what you’re looking for. And it’s easier than you think.
