The first Urasenke chapter outside Japan was established in Hawaii in 1951. After that, chapters and study groups, now known as Tankokai associations, were founded in many major cities around the world. To serve as a direct conduit leading from the grand master and Urasenke headquarters to the respective region, Urasenke Foundation branches and liaison offices, at which official Urasenke resident representatives are stationed, have also been established. This page is designed to guide you to the nearest Chado Urasenke Tankokai association and/or Urasenke Foundation regional office in your region. For Chado Urasenke Tankokai associations with no web link, please contact the Urasenke Tankokai Federation International Affairs Department for assistance.
