Am I still eligible for the course without understanding Japanese at all?

If you just take the Tea Ceremony Course, it is fine to know no Japanese.

If you start the Japanese lessons from May 7th, you should know a basic level of Japanese. If you can start the Japanese lesson from April 2, it is no problem to know zero Japanese.

The tea Ceremony course is taught in Japanese, but help in English is provided.

Not having experienced Tea Ceremony at all in my life, am I still eligible to join the course?

Yes, you will have no problem at all. You can learn about Tea Ceremony from the basics.

Can I participate in the course from the middle of the program?

No, you cannot. The program is designed to progress gradually, so no participation is allowed midway through the program.
