Panama Tea House

The Panama Hotel and Tea House sits in the heart of Seattle's historic Japantown - or Nihonmachi - on the street–level of a restored 1910 building. The Tea House is a community gathering space for all ages — from elderly Nisei (second generation Japanese Americans) to young hipsters, policy wonks and budding artists. Thanks to the national best-seller, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, the Panama Hotel and Tea House has become a top tourist destination for visitors seeking to experience and learn more about Seattle’s Japanese-American community.  Enjoy a delicate Japanese pastry, delicious teas or coffee, and drink in the flavor of historic Japantown.
