After working for 12 years as the Director of Human Resources for UBS Securities Japan Limited, the Investment Bank Division of Swiss Bank, Hiromi Matsushita left to become a tendai sect monk and lead a quieter and more spiritually connected life. Join us as he discusses his journey toward the priesthood and the role of Buddhism in his life. Come join us for this interesting presentation at 1 pm.

Tea ceremonies will be held at 10 am, 11 am 12 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm for a reduced rate of $5 per person. No need for reservations, just purchase a ticket when you arrive!

Enjoy a tour of the gardens by Jim Bier at 11 am and 2 pm. The Buddhism presentation and the garden tour are free and open to all.
